Origami bridges centuries of genius in art and science. The spread of origami can be thought of as a measure of globalization. This writing-intensive course is an interdisciplinary exploration of the significant ties between origami and various majors across campus. As a class, we will investigate the strong ties between mathematics and art in the forms of origami. Student presentations will explore the traditional elements of creativity as well as implications in the student's own major. While art majors and minors learn how to become artists, all students who study a visual art learn imaginative and innovative problem solving. This course will allow students to investigate their major and express it in a new fashion.
