Student Tessellations  

Back to Tessellation Tutorials || Student Tessellation Samples

The following tessellations were made by students in Suzanne Alejandre's Computer Elective class at Frisbie Middle School. The students used a Claris Works paint file to tessellate, copied and pasted their tessellation into a Claris Works word processing file, and then wrote a poem to accompany their tessellation. Please click on each thumbnail-sized graphic to view the tessellation and the poem.

Also this school year Suzanne Alejandre's Math 7 students created tessellations as part of an interdisciplinary project. Their tessellations can be found here.
