Follow precise, multi-step directions.

Be able to understand and define the following terms: tessellation, polygon, angle, plane, vertex, and adjacent.

Create a concrete model of a tessellation.

Art Feb 21-24


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.”
