Tessellating tiles

In this teaching resource students learn how to construct shapes that will tessellate (or tile) a plane area. Starting with a regular shape known to tessellate (square, equilateral triangle, hexagon), students apply geometrical transformations to the sides of the shape to create new shapes that tessellate. There are links ...
