“Cube Conundrums” featuring MIT Professor Erik Demaine

What has six sides and eight corners?  A cube!  You can construct a cube from a flat piece of paper by starting, for example, from a cross shape.  But there are other, more unusual shapes, that can also fold into a cube.  Join MIT Professor Erik Demaine as he presents some of the more unusual shapes that also fold into a cube, a number of which are devilishly difficult puzzles.  Come solve these cube conundrums with us on May 24, in honor of 2 + 4 = 6, in this last edition of The Six Series celebrating MoMath’s sixth birthday.

Some of these cuttings fold to form a cube...

The Six Series is hosted by Fields Medalist and Distinguished Visiting Professor Manjul Bhargava.
