Think like a designer: Design a tessellation
A tessellation, or tiling, is an arrangement of shapes that completely covers a surface without overlapping, and without leaving any gaps. Tessellations are found in nature, art, and in the built environment, creating a wide range of visually captivating designs.
Get creative with design in class
In this activity, students investigate tessellations as they appear in the real world as a basis for creating their own tessellation pattern that can be reproduced on a product design.
