What is the difference between a regular tessellation and a semi-pure tessellation? Where does the term tessellation originate, and what is the sum of angles around one vertex in a tessellation of the plane by polygons? Treat your class to an art-filled math experience using museum objects and patterned surfaces to explore different math concepts about tessellations and polygons.
Students are introduced to a mummy case, an Islamic prayer niche, an Escher print, and other works while learning to identify various tessellations using a viewing guide included in the Teacher Information Packet, that accompanies the videoconference.
