20 August 2001 Vol. 6, No. 34 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS Regular Tessellations - S. Alejandre | ODE Resources Place Value - T2T FAQ REGULAR TESSELLATIONS - Suzanne Alejandre Math Forum Companion Lesson for BoxerMath.com's Tessellation Tool http://mathforum.org/pubs/boxer/tess.html Suzanne Alejandre at the Math Forum has developed a middle school lesson utilizing Boxer's Tessellation Tool Java applet to help students understand why equilateral triangles, squares, and regular hexagons tessellate regularly in the Euclidean plane. In addition to alignment to NCTM Standards and a step-by-step guide, the Teacher Lesson Plan links to Math Forum resources such as: - Information and Lessons - Problems of the Week - Teacher2Teacher - Ask Dr. Math The Student Page is here: http://mathforum.org/pubs/boxer/student.tess.html BoxerMath.com offers on-line curricula for Pre-algebra, Algebra I & II, Geometry, and Trigonometry. All courses include practice problems, tests, lesson plans and enrichment activities. BoxerMath.com also correlates course lessons with state and national mathematics standards.
