3. Pick the sketch you like best and turn it into a nice tessellation. Use a black pen to ink in the figures. Use color if you want to make the figures stand out more.

B. Did you use any reflections? (circle one): YES NO
C. Did you use any translations? (circle one): YES NO
D. Did you use any rotations ? (circle one): YES NO
