It presents 30 great origami activities, complete with handouts (which are available here), solutions, and instructor's guides. All of the material would be a great fit for a high school math circle, and some of the activities would be accessible to middle schoolers too. Most involve concepts from college-level math and so also have a place in courses like calculus, number theory, discrete math, abstract algebra, and topology. That's one of the things I love about origami - it draws from so many areas of math!

I highly recommend this book, as it's been of my favorite resources throughout the years. I especially like:

- Folding a Parabola
- Can Origami Trisect an Angle?
- Solving Cubic Equations
- Making Origami Buckyballs
- Making Origami Tori
