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 ...

Measures: scaling up

Compare the areas of squares, rectangles and triangles before and after being scaled up (enlarged). Notice that 'similar shapes' in the mathematical sense have the same shape but different areas. Explore the relationship between side-length enlargement and area enlargement when scaling up shapes. This learning object is ...

Interactive resource

Measures: scaling down

Compare the areas of squares, rectangles and triangles before and after being scaled down (reduced). Notice that 'similar shapes' in the mathematical sense have the same shape but different areas. Explore the relationship between side-length reduction and area reduction when scaling down shapes. This learning object is ...
