The 7th graders are finishing up their first project of the year: tessellations. The students learned about the creation of tessellations through repetition, rotation, and reflection. They examined many works by MC Escher, the Dutch graphic artist credited with so many mathematical tessellations.

Here are some great links to websites with more information and activities on tessellations:
