This activity asks the student to make a semi-regular
tessellation. There are 8 such tessellations. Students use Sketchpad
shapes above to make all the tessellations and then explain why they
See examples of the tessellations.
Another approach used with a different group of students to come up
with the 8 semi-regular tessellations with the virtual manipulatives
from Utah State. A new feature in the library is the ability to design
your own lessons. This lesson sequence which was developed during the
summer workshop will be used in year 2.
Here's some screen shots of what can be done using eNLVM.
