Hexaflexagons are paper polygons with a surprising number of faces. They were first discovered in 1939 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.P. Feynman and J.W. Tukey. 

Trihexaflexagons 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! 

Hexahexaflexagons 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?
