Extreme paper-folding anyone??

Looks like fun - if you like that sort of thing!

Dunno, about the 'sport' in question, but the whole concept of it brings back memories of Maths with DJO'Meara...

How many times would a piece of paper need to be folded to reach the moon... :roll:

Any takers?

Or it could have been Maths lessons with Mrs Dobson in a variety of schools around the world. I loved doing things the children did not think were Maths and then seeing them realise that Maths is all around us, if only we open our eyes to it.

I didn't really learn this in CH, I'm not too sure how it came about!

This has to rank along with train-spotting and watching paint dry !
