Chapter 7: Tessellations
Creating a Tessellating Design
Tessellations (or tilings, as they are sometimes called) are very visually appealing. There are probably many tessellations in your everyday surroundings—in nature, in your home, in your school, and outside. Can you think of some tessellations that you see every day?
Since you and your class have just learned all about tessellations, you want to create a visually appealing tessellation design that you could use to decorate your bedroom. You will create a tile, trace your tile to create a tessellation design, and then write a detailed description that someone else could follow to recreate your tessellation design.
