I thought it might be fun to share a set of problems on Möbius strips. These interesting objects have several surprising and wonderful properties, and best of all, they're very easy to make.
To make it more fun, try making your own Möbius strip and experiment with it.
Instructions for making a Möbius strip
- Cut a long strip of paper. You'll want it to be several cm across, and it should be much longer than its width.
- Bring the ends together to make a simple loop.
- Before attaching them together, add a single half-twist to one side of the strip (as in the image above).
- Enjoy your Möbius strip!
