Wrapping Presents like a Mathematician

If you thought that wrapping presents doesn’t have mathematics in it, you forgot about geometry for a second. But, as expected, I am here to remind you about this beautiful thing. I won’t write much, but I have 2 videos prepared for you. They are short videos which explain interesting and beautiful maths concepts about wrapping the perfect Christmas gift using the minimum amount of paper (so optimization at its peak) and the result is a beautiful wrapped present.

Also, here are some other interesting and geometrical ways to wrap those objects which are not really prisms:

And last but not least, here are some extremely creative ways to upgrade your wrapping skills:

I had so much fun writing this post and I think it is one of my favorite Christmas related post so far. Hope you are having fun and enjoy the 12 days before Christmas. Hope you found this helpful. Thank you for your help and support. You can find me on Facebook,  Tumblr,  Google+,  TwitterInstagramLettrs and WeHeartIt, I will try to post there as often as possible. Don’t forget that maths is everywhere! Enjoy!
