Activity: Exploring and Creating Tessellations
Go to: (opens a new window)
Description: This activity has students explore and construct several different types of tessellations. The first part of the activity uses only regular polygons to create pure and semi-pure tessellations; therefore, you will need custom tools for the constructions of an equilateral triangle, a square, and a regular hexagon [these come with the standard installation of Sketchpad]. The second part extends the notion of tessellations to create non-regular polygon and "Escher-like" tessellations.
