### Type of Tessellations

A Triangle Tessellations

A Square Tessellations

A Hexagon Tessellations

### Tessellations all around us

Look for tessellations in walls, patios and pavements.

### Tessellations all around us

Sometimes an unusual shape will tessellate

Common shapes can be arranged in unusual ways

### Tessellations all around us

Sometimes 2 or more different shapes will tessellate.

### Tessellation with Pentominoes

Here is one example to get you started….

### Tessellation with 7-Pin Polygons

Which 7-pin polygons will tessellate?

Here is one example to get you started….

### Make Your Own Escher Tessellations 1

Step 1: Start with a simple shape that will tessellate e.g. a rectangle.

Step 2: Remove a shape or shapes from one side of the rectangle and fix them to the opposite side.

### Make Your Own Escher Tessellations 1

Use this as a template to create your tessellation.

### 7-Pin Polygons

Here is an arrangement of 7 pins.

A 7-pin polygon is a closed shape with straight sides with corners on the pins.

Here are some examples of 7-pin polygons.

How many different 7-pin polygons can you find?
