Hexaflexagons are paper polygons with a surprising number of faces. They were first discovered in by Arthur Stone, who set up a Flexagon Committee to investigate their properties. The committee consisted of the famous Mathematicians and Physicists, B. Tuckerman, R.

Feynman and J. The trihexaflexagon has three different faces. To make a trihexaflexagon follow these easy steps. Now you can have some fun. Colour the three different faces of your trihexaflexagon with different designs and start flexing. You should find that there are a few more designs than you counted on! A hexahexaflexagon has six different faces.

Construct a hexahexaflexagon as follows:. Start flexing and see if you can find all the other sides. Some sides are trickier to find than others. Colour or paste pictures on the six different faces and flex away. How many different patterns can you make? Trihexaflexagons The trihexaflexagon has three different faces. Step Cut a strip of paper and mark ten equilateral triangles as shown on the left. Number the triangles and crease along the lines joining the triangles. Fold the strip back along the line marked ab.

Fold the strip back along the line marked cd. From the centre ease out the inner edge of the two unmarked triangles so that your trihexaflexagon is flat. Hexahexaflexagons A hexahexaflexagon has six different faces. Construct a hexahexaflexagon as follows: Step Take a longer piece of paper almost twice as long as the trihexaflexagon and mark 19 equilateral triangles as shown.

Carefully label the triangles on both sides of the paper as shown above and crease along the lines joining the triangles. Fold so that the triangles labelled 4 face each other, as do the triangles labelled 5 and the triangles labelled 6. You are essentially wrapping the paper into a spiral. Your strip should now resemble that used to make the trihexaflexagon.

Fold and glue as in the instructions for the trihexaflexagon. You should find that all the triangles on each side have the same number.

How to Make a Hexaflexagon

A hexaflexagon is a paper hexagon that is folded from a strip of paper. As the sides are flexed, or moved, they reveal more surfaces than a standard hexagon would. Like a hexagon, it still has 6 sides. Within the hexagon, there are 6 additional faces—as opposed to 2 faces on a standard hexagon shape. A hexaflexagon is a paper hexagon with all of the sides flexed to show more surfaces than a standard hexagon can.
