Flex Mex and the Hexa-mexa-flexagon

Flex Mex and the Hexa-mexa-flexagon


This is perfect for me.  I love mexican food and I’ve always struggled with making your standard hexa-flexagon.  These instructional videos by Vi Hart (a mathe-musician at the Khan Academy) are the perfect antidote for my soul.

I’m not even sure if I’m recommending this to a food technology teacher or a math guru?  I’m just sure that I am definitely recommending it.  Vi is funny, she’s onto it and she makes it look super easy.

Comments from her fans include – “Please open a mathematically themed restaurant” and other cool stuff. For those of you that thinks combining mexican food with maths sounds a little dangerous then the Hexa-flexagon Safety Guide is surely the thing for you.
