Dimensions - Exploring Flatland

hint section


How would Flatlanders carry things?


For a bag: How would you make a bag two dimensional? Try trapping some paper cut-outs in the plane a desk or table. In Flatland these pieces could not fall off the table. They could only move in left-right and north-south directions on the table.

For a handle: Think about how toy trains connect. How would this translate into two dimensions?
