I found all of this information wonderful! We bought our son a set of colored wooden tiles in a box with many preprinted colored pattern sheets to try to match to. The patterns, shapes, and colors match yours on this page exactly, and they're great fun for he and I...but I had no idea we were doing tessellations!
Thanks for the info, and thanks for all the good work you're doing with math. Our children need soooooo much more help with this, and this is a GREAT way to keep them involved/interested.
FYI - Another great math site is called Mega Math, by Los Alamos and the U of Idaho...Perhaps a mathematical merger of some degree would equate to widespread benefit?
