Where's the Math in Tessellations?
Date: 1/19/96 at 16:41:32 From: Barb Barras Mfg 4-6967 ~BHOSVWZ#091 Subject: tessellations My son is doing an honors project for his 9th grade algebra class. He is to make the connection between math and art. Researching tessellations would prove helpful. But it seem the only information we come up with is about M.C. Escher and some examples of tessellations. We got the program 'TesselMania' and it's great. He would like to have some help on making the connection between art and math. Can you help? Barb Barras

It starts at http://mathforum.org/sum95/suzanne/tess.intro.html and includes many pages linked to this URL. Good luck with the honors project! -Doctor Sarah, The Geometry Forum
