A möbius strip is a 3dimensional geometric figure with one side and one edge.^{[1]} Möbius strip is also spelled 'moebius strip'. It is constructed with a single strip of paper. The two ends of the strip are attached, but one is twisted 180°. If one cuts a möbius strip completely in the middle, it does not make two pieces. The möbius strip was discovered by Ferdinand Möbius (German 17901868) in 1858. Figure 2 shows a illustration for a möbius strip by M. C. Escher (18981972). It illustrates the concept that an ant placed on the side of a möbius strip can crawl around it without leaving the one side. To build your own möbius strip, print out a copy of this net of a möbius strip and follow the directions.
