Thanks for posting that jdudejam. It's always helpful to have physical ways to think about math concepts. I wonder if there are any engineering or architectural applications for mobius strips.

I fixed the spelling a bit in your title. I hope you don't mind.

In Experiment #4, the 3 strips of paper do not look like Mobius Strips, and after many attempts it does not seem logical and or possible to do this without tape involved. Let me know if I am missing something here- Thanks Tony
