Shows teachers and students how to design and draw their own Escher-like tessellations to combine math and art into one lesson. The introductory chapters cover the history of tessellations and examples of tessellations in nature and in man-made objects. A chapter on geometric tessellations describes regular and semi-regular tessellations; different types of polygons; and concepts like tiles, edges, and vertices. Transformations and the different types of symmetry found in tessellations are described in depth. Contains over a dozen tips on how to draw tessellations, with examples illustrating each one. Also comes with over 24 templates with grids and detailed instructions for creating tessellations with tiles based on squares, triangles, rhombi, and hexagons. Each chapter includes classroom activities that will teach students how to create their own tessellations. 140 pages. Grades 5-12.
