2 Copyright © 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide DEFINITION: TILES AND TILING 13.3 A simple closed curve, together with its interior, is a tile. A set of tiles forms a tiling of a figure if the figure is completely covered by the tiles without overlapping any interior points of the tiles. In a tiling of a figure, there can be no gaps between tiles. Tilings are also known as tessellations.

Equilateral triangles form a regular tiling because the measures of the interior angles meeting at a vertex figure add to 360.

9 Copyright © 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide TILING THE PLANE WITH CONGRUENT POLYGONAL TILES 13.3 The plane can be tiled by: any triangular tile; any quadrilateral tile, convex or not; certain pentagonal tiles (for example, those with two parallel sides); certain hexagonal tiles (for example, those with two opposite parallel sides of the same length).

10 Copyright © 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide SEMIREGULAR TILINGS OF THE PLANE 13.3 An edge-to-edge tiling of the plane with more than one type of regular polygon and with identical vertex figures is called a semiregular tiling.
