Follow precise, multi-step directions.
Have the opportunity to go beyond the immediate lesson and apply artistic creativity, or learn more about M. C. Escher, his art, or the contributions he made to mathematics.
Be able to understand and define the following terms: tessellation, polygon, angle, plane, vertex, and adjacent.
Create a concrete model of a tessellation.
On Monday, we will have a final discussion of the novels that were read A Thousand Splendid Suns and I Am Malala. Students will get the option to read the other novel if they choose. We will begin our unit on synthesis by revisiting the essays from the Sports and Fitness unit. Throughout this week, students will deconstruct synthesis prompts and they will have their own synthesis projects to complete by next week. Details will be given on this project in class.
We will finish up Eastern philosophy on Monday and move on to medieval philosophy which can also be called theology since these philosophers were known as the “Church Fathers.” This was a period very influenced by Christianity and philosophical thought was dominated by religion beliefs. This will then be compared to other philosophers’ contributions to the ideas of religion and faith.
Lunes y martes seguiremos trabajando con el tema de la descripción. Guía de estudio.

A tessellation of a flat surface is the tiling of plane using one or more geometric or non geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. In math, tessellations can be generalized to higher dimensions and a variety of geometries.
Escher is regarded as the ‘Father’ of modern tessellations so. He is famous for his impossible depictions and he was a master of lino and wood cuts and produced many superbly crafted landscapes as well.
During his life, he became obsessed with filling surfaces with pictures that did not overlap or leave spaces. Aged 68, he stated, “Filling two-dimensional planes has become a real mania to which I have become addicted and from which I sometimes find it hard to tear myself away.”
