It’s Okay To Be Smart • Hexaflexagons!! Happy October! Behold this lovely….

The beauty of mathematics is a mystery. These hexaflexagons look fun. I would be interested to see a paper on the mathematics of this.

The Wikepedia article is helpful.

    I have come across flexagons only once – from a biography on Richard Feynman I learned that he has once indulged in flexagons. Unfortunately Feynman did not give a lecture on this or wrote a book in the style of his books / lectures on QED (AFAIK).
