 Tessellation Proof [6/11/1996]

I am looking for the proof of the statement that only three regular
polygons tessellate in the Euclidean plane.
 Tessellations and Symmetries [06/07/1997]

How do you make a tessellation with a rotation, reflection, and
translation all in one shape?
 Tiling a Floor [06/30/1999]

How many square yards is a 12ft. by 15ft. room? How many 8" x 8" tiles
would you need for a 30 sq. ft. room?
 Transformations and Tessellations Symmetry [7/2/1995]

We must teach about reflectional symmetry, line s., axis of s., line of
s., mirror s., vertical s., horizontal s., horizontal and vertical s.,
toysyionsl d., and point s.
 Transformations in the 2D Plane as Composition of Reflections [06/27/2005]

Considering the 4 symmetry transformations (reflection, rotation,
translations, and glide reflections), is it possible to express any
transformation as a composition of at most three reflections?
 Types of Tessellations [11/15/1998]

I am doing a project on tessellations. Can you explain some of the
mathematics behind them?
 Where's the Math in Tessellations? [1/20/1996]

My son is doing an honors project for his 9th grade algebra class. He is
supposed to make the connection between math and art. The only
information we come up with is about M.C. Escher and some examples of
tessellations.
