About the Author

Arnold Tubis is a retired physics professor who was a faculty member at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana from 1960 to 2000 (nine years as department head). He now lives in Carlsbad, California. Origami has been an avocation of his since the early 1960s and his models have been exhibited in the USA, Japan, Europe, and Israel. He is the co-author of "Decorative Origami Boxes from Single Squares" (with Leon Brown, British Origami Society, 2003), "Unfolding Mathematics with Origami Boxes" (with Crystal Elaine Mills, Key Curriculum Press, 2006), "Fun with Folded Fabric Boxes" (with Crystal Elaine Mills, C&T Publications, 2007), and author of "Tipping with Origami Money Folds" (CreateSpace.com, 2013). He has also authored or co-authored over 15 papers on origami in K-12 mathematics education. He is currently focused on designing models that require at most an intermediate folding-skill level, and can be used to enrich the teaching of geometry in middle school and high school. He is currently the coordinator of the Greater San Diego Origami Group.

Diana Lee started folding paper at the early age of four years. Her first folded model was the classic waterbomb. This was soon followed by the flapping bird and peace crane. Decades later, she continues to fold paper and shares her love of origami through her web site, the Origami Resource Center: http://www.origami-resource-center.com. Diana has degrees of BSc, MSc, and PhD in biochemistry and molecular genetics. She currently lives in California.
