Mobius Strips   (Authored by Darlene Wolfe)

Description: The Mobius strip often upsets the students' expectation of the normal order of things. To practice the critical thinking and higher order thinking skills necessary to science inquiry, students construct and cut a Mobius strip in half, lengthwise twice. Logically, a piece of paper is two sided, however, the Mobius strip is defined as one-sided, “proven” by the line on only one side and the results of the first lengthwise cut.
