Math Blog Post- Tessellations

Today, I learned about tessellations in math class. Our school’s art teacher came in and showed us some examples of tessellations in art, and then we made some. We first took a piece of paper and cut it in half, in any line we wanted. Then, we taped the two flat edges together and cut it again in a quirky way, and we taped it again. Then, we took a small poster and traced our shape numerous times until the whole poster was full of shapes. Then, we looked and saw a figure in our shape, and colored it in as we deemed appropriate.

Here’s me cutting and taping the shape:
