Points will be assigned for the following components of the project. The objective of the project is to have you explore tessellations through experimentation and thereby follow somewhat in the footsteps of MC Escher. In grading I will be looking for evidence that you thoroughly explored several methods used to create tessellations. Your art work should be a nicely finished project.
