Collaborative exploration into stab-book-binding and graph theory

Collaborative exploration into stab-binding and graph theory with Natalie Freed. Natalie and I explored connections between the Eulerian path problem (the foundation of graph theory) and a traditional “stab” bookbinding technique. In 2015 we led an exploratory workshop at the Exploratorium teachers summer school.

We co-designed (and Natalie has developed) a digital app to create a stitch pattern and use mathematical inquiry to solve the puzzle of ordering the stitches. See it in action
