Abstract: We present typical constructions of 3D origami models based on the modular origami technique: face modules, edge modules and vertex modules. We discuss the correspondence between the polyhedron as a geometrical structure and a source of symmetry and the actual origami model. Several examples of polyhedral symmetry of models are presented. Making origami models may be effectively used in mathematics education to improve spatial imagination skill and better understanding of symmetry.
