Origami & Excel

Course Description

1-3 hr course that introduces the concept of Discrete Data and Model simulation.  We will explore the reasons for migration in animal species, addressing in particular the Monarch Butterflies.  We will learn how to input discrete data in Excel (or Google Sheets) and the basic tools for graphing, and fitting a curve that best describes the trend of the data.  In addition we will explore the basic orgami folding techniques to build our own paper butterflies.
