  As a student at Northern Illinois University, Jennifer
  Jasensky began researching the seventeen different wallpaper
  patterns that can be created using translations, rotations, and
  reflections.

  Funded by a grant from USOAR (Undergraduate Special 
  Opportunities in Artistry and Research Program), Jasensky 
  studied these patterns in Spain and has created a website 
  with photographs and classifications.

  The site includes:

    - Wallpaper Patterns
    - Patterns in Sevilla
    - Patterns in Granada
    - Patterns in Almeria
    - Lesson Planning
    - Other Helpful Links
