27 April 1998 Vol. 3, No. 17 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS Sketchpad Tessellations | HQC Computing Library | Imaging the Imagined GEOMETER'S SKETCHPAD TESSELLATION TUTORIAL - Cathi Sanders In the spirit of Suzanne Alejandre's Tessellation Tutorials, Cathi gives step-by-step directions for using the Geometer's Sketchpad to make original tessellations, and provides a tutorial sketch to download: http://mathforum.org/sum95/suzanne/tess.gsp.tutorial.html Tessellations by Cathi's students at Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii are on the Web, together with comments they have written about their work: http://mathforum.org/sum95/suzanne/hawaii.html For fun, try manipulating a JavaSketchpad tessellation, from the Forum, or download more sketches: http://mathforum.org/~sarah/java.gsp/tess1.gsp.html If you don't have the Geometer's Sketchpad, you can download a demo version from the Math Forum: http://mathforum.org/dynamic.html Cathi Sanders teaches a portfolio class in high school geometry at Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii, and an E-School interactive electronic geometry class funded through the Hawaii Department of Education. She has a particular interest in projects that interweave geometry, art, and design. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- HQC's SCIENCE ONLINE SOLUTION LIBRARY http://soli.inav.net/~hqcom/hqcscieng/math/math.html The HQC SciEng Online Solution Library contains interactive science and engineering solution tools that can be used to compute geometry, basic math functions, series, linear algebraic equations, nonlinear equations, interpolating, curve fitting or regression, integration, differentiation, differential equations, statistics, graphic plotting, data visualization, and more.
