Watch Yossi Elran summarise the course
Well, that’s it! We’ve finished a good lot of work on flexagons, We’ve learned about cyclic and non-cyclic flexagons, Seen quite a few flexes, ֿ and learned about the math behind them. Now it’s time to say goodbye. Thank you for being with me on this course. I hope you’ve not only learnt a lot, but you’ve had a lot of fun. I have - and I’ll be looking forward to continuing our discussions. I would like to encourage you to explore other sites and discover some more flexagons, and maybe you’ll even find something new that no-one has discovered yet. There is still so much more to learn about these special objects.
Feel free to continue the conversation in our social media and look out for more courses from the Davidson Institute of Science Education, the educational wing of the Weizmann Institute of Science.

So! We have reached the end of the course.

We do plan on offering more courses like this on Future Learn so please, do stay tuned.
