In the explorations, on the homework and on exams one is often asked to create tessellations. When we draw such tessellations it is important to show enough of a pattern to establish that what we have is truly a tessellation of the plane.
The following are some examples of patterns turned in by students who have taken this class. For each answer the following questions:
- Is this truly a tessellation?
- If it is a tessellation of the plane, show where the next "layer of tiles" go. I.e. extend the tessellation on all sides.
- If there is a problem, can it be fixed easily? Do we maybe need to remove a tile and place it different? Or do we need to start over?
