Richard Briston's Math Assignments

Some parts of this assignment were taken from Suzanne Alejandre's Web Unit on Tessellations. Please go to her page, take a look around, and send her mail telling her you visited her site. She would enjoy hearing from you. Explain why you are visiting her page and what it has to do with your math assignment.

You will be completing this work on a Macintosh computer using HyperCard. It may be possible to complete this activity on a PC but you need to check to see whether your drawing program has the "Trace" command. If the command is available, then you can use that program.

The results of your work should be printed out instead of being emailed, and you will need to keep a copy of the end product on a floppy disk - next month we will learn how to send pictures over the Internet. (Doing this activity on a Mac will help in saving a lot of time in the future.)
