Modular Hybrid Unit and its Math
Professor Tom Hull (from the math department of Western New England University) will teach his Hybrid Unit which uses duo paper (say, white on one side and a color on the other, or fancier paper with two colors, one on each side, if you have it) to make many models of different sizes and different color patterns. The unit is not hard and it locks well. It can make a 5-unit spinning top, a 12-unit star shape (stellated octahedron), or even bigger models requiring 30, 48, 60, or more units. To understand the variety of shapes and color patterns you can make will require a little bit of math, but not equations or formulas. No no, it requires understanding how 3D shapes work, and Dr. Hull is a very good teacher! So do not let the math scare you! Join this class and expand your modular repertoire!
