Abstract: Origami as an ancient artform that increasingly is finding use in the
modern mathematics classroom. Dedicated textbooks and courses exist
which explore mathematics through origami as well as the mathematics
of origami. In this talk I will highlight relevant resources as well
as give many practical applications for the inclusion of origami in
teaching at all levels of mathematics education.
