A project of ART and MATH A tessellation is created when a shape is repeated over and over again covering a plane without any gaps or overlaps. In other words, it is any repeating pattern of interlocking shapes. Tessellations are also sometimes known as tilings Not all shapes can tessellate. They need to fill the space around the point without any gaps. Notice, this pentagon can NOT fit together For the purposes of THIS project, we will be creating a tessellation based on either; A tessellation of Equilateral TRIANGLES A tessellation of SQUARES Rotation: To rotate an object means to turn it around. Every rotation has a center and an angle. Translation: To translate an object means to move it without rotating or reflecting it. Every translation has a direction and a distance. Reflection: To reflect an object means to produce its mirror image. Every reflection has a mirror line. Glide Reflection: A glide reflection combines a reflection with a translation along the direction of the mirror line. Glide reflections are the only type of symmetry that involve more than one step. ROTATE TRANSLATE (I decided to TRANSLATE my piece) Note: You HAVE to move your second piece the same as your first. I translated the first piece, so this piece must also TRANSLATE! Hmmm….the possibilities are endless! Make sure to write your NAME & HOMEROOM on the back in PENCIL. Don’t forget that this project gives you a mark in BOTH Art and Math!
