At the Basilica your assignment is to find interesting examples of a rozette, of a border pattern and of a wallpaper pattern.

You and your team mate(s) will create a poster showing a photograph of the three patterns you chose, with a description. You should clearly explain what kind of symmetry group each pattern has and why. You will create a line drawing of the patterns and indicate the translations, rotations, reflections, and glide reflections on them.
