            REGULAR TESSELLATIONS - Suzanne Alejandre
                   Math Forum Companion Lesson
             for's Tessellation Tool

  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:
