In this program you will see some pink smiley faces. When you see one you should take off your headset and work with your partner on your worksheet. Each page will have one or more buttons like the blue arrow to the right. These buttons will take you to other pages that will teach you about Geometry!

3
Some shapes that we know: CircleSquareTriangleDiamondOval Rectangle All of these shapes and many more can be used to form patterns. Take a minute to talk to your partner about what a pattern looks like and how they are made.

4
- A pattern is a series of objects that are repeated in the same way. Here are examples of patterns: Can you see the pattern below? Find the patterns with your partner. Then draw the next five shapes for each.

5
Choose the next shape by clicking on a dark blue button. circlerectangletriangle

Let’s look at something else.

12
There are so many things that can be made into patterns. Talk with your partner and think of at least five unusual things that you can use to create patterns. TO READ OUR IDEAS CLICK HERE Patterns can also fill large spaces, they do not have to be in a straight line!

SLIDE I’m done learning these terms! TURN FLIP SYMMETRY

15
Watch the car slide across the screen! Why is this a slide? In this case the car has moved forward. It has stayed the same size and shape and also faces the same direction as the original car. original car Back to Main Menu

16
Some artists tessellate complex objects in their artwork! Artists tessellate objects like this butterfly by using the slides, turns and flips that you learned about earlier. The butterfly in this picture is also symmetrical! Now that you know all about this cool word, tessellation, you should ask Mrs. Ferrington to add it to your word board. We hope you had as much fun as we did learning about Geometry!

17
Back to Main Menu Watch the tree flip! Why is this a flip? The tree is flipped from top to bottom. Each new tree is the same size and shape as the original. original tree

18
Back to Main Menu All of the shapes that we used earlier for patterns have symmetry! Why do they have symmetry? These shapes are symmetrical because you can draw a line that will split the shape into two parts that are exactly the same.

19
Back to Main Menu Things that we turn are similar to turns in math!

When we look at honeycomb close up we can see a natural tessellation!

23
Look at your neighbor. You may not know it, but their body has symmetry and so does yours. Back to Main Menu Where is the imaginary line that divides your body into two parts? Mary and Melody have symmetry. We both have: 2 eyes, 2 ears, 2 arms, 2 legs and 2 feet -There are so many things that are symmetrical about our bodies! Mary Melody

24
On your worksheet you will see many objects. Put an X through the objects that you and your partner feel cannot be tessellated. carpet sidewalk brick These are pictures of tessellations that we found at our school. You might want to look for tessellations in your classroom or at home. One last thing about tessellations!

25
Look at some more shapes that can be tessellated! Some of them have been tessellated on the page. All of the shapes can be tessellated because they fit together without any gaps! Click here to see a tessellation found in nature!

26
What I see is up to me! Tessellation! Help me think of things it can be. Tessellation! It is a fun word to say… Tessellation! Math and art come together and play. Tessellation! Tessellation Has no gaps and it has no end. Tessellation!

27
This is a tessellation because the triangle is repeated over and over filling the space without any gaps. Many objects can be tessellated. All it takes is many of one object that fit together like a puzzle. A circle cannot be used for a tessellation because when you fit them together there are many gaps.

32
Back to Main Menu Click the mouse and watch the light bulb turn. You will have to click four times to see the light bulb turn all the way back to where it started. Why is this a turn? In this case the light bulb has stayed the same size and shape as the original bulb. However with every click the bulb changes direction. original light bulb

Back to Main Menu ORIGINAL SHAPE top bottom Click the mouse to see this shape after it has been flipped

34
NEW SHAPE top bottom Now click the mouse to read the explanation of this flip. Back to Main Menu

35
ORIGINAL SHAPE NEW SHAPE Back to Main Menu Why is this a flip? This is a flip because the pink moon has been flipped across an imaginary line and the new red moon is upside down!
