Make-your-own Tessellation Lesson - Paper cut method Perfect while learning about MCEscher. Dare you to try one. Add a curve in there, if you want to get really tricky. I'm looking forward to teaching this lesson in Savannah's class next Monday! Tessellation is the process of creating a two-dimensional plane using the repetition of a geometric shape with no overlaps and no gaps.
M.C. Escher Tessellations A tessellation is created when a shape is repeated over and over again covering a plane without any gaps or overlaps. I learned the hard way how easily triangles can get flopped and rotated, so I came up with a numbering process that eliminates the problem.
