Maths Mystery Box 10: LETHALFebruary 13, 2015
Middle School Maths Challenge
Symmetry, geometry plus guts and determination.
Make a paper plane that can fly as high as a 5-story building and test it.
– Half A4 sheet
– A rubber band
The physics of paper is complex. Folder paper is very strong. Here students create a world record folding a piece of paper 13 times.
Crumpled paper is also very strong. Crumple a piece and try and flatten it. More here.

Now for the BIG challenge:
The above paper plane has 5 wing folds. Can you make a bigger paper plane with more folds. For instance, you could try an A4 sheet.
