Objective: Learn to recognize symmetries of frieze patterns.

Materials

  • Two copies of File:Blocky.pdf, one printed on paper and one on a transparency.
  • Scissors

Procedure

  1. Cut the transparency into eight strips as indicated.
  2. For each strip pattern on the paper, use the corresponding transparency strip as an overlay to test for symmetries. On the paper, mark all symmetries for each pattern.
  3. What is going on with pattern #8?

Handin: The paper of strip patterns, marked with symmetries.
