WHAT ARE TESSELLATIONS?

Tessellations are connected patterns made of repeating shapes that cover a surface completely without overlapping or leaving any holes.

For example; a checker board is a tessellation comprised of alternating colored squares. The squares meet with no overlapping and can be extended on a surface forever.

Tessellation patterns are a famous form of Mathematical art! And with a variety of tessellation styles, kids can explore new ways to make tessellating shapes while developing their spatial reasoning skills.
