Where's the Math?
About This Project || What is a Tessellation? || Tessellation Tutorials || Tessellation Links
In working with Dr. Susan Addington in the California Math Show project, I have often been asked the question, "Where's the math?" As students explore mathematics through activities such as drawing tessellating patterns or forming tessellations with activity pattern blocks, it is important for teachers to emphasize mathematical ideas. One mathematical idea that can be emphasized through tessellations is symmetry. As this page develops, I hope to provide a variety of mathematical activities along with their more formalized mathematical explanations.
