            TESSELLATION EXPLORATION - Kevin Lee

  http://www.tomsnyder.com/products/productdetail.asp?PS=TESEXP

  With the Tessellation Exploration software, transformational
  geometry concepts are reinforced as students create
  2-dimensional tessellations, then watch them slide, turn,
  flip, and glide on the screen. Students also explore
  tessellations that exist in the world, such as honeycombs,
  tile floors, and brick buildings.
