Surrounded by Rep-Tiles A Tessellation Activity

Rep-Tile Design: Rep-tiles are geometric figures such that n copies will tessellate. This means that each piece must fit together with NO gaps and NO overlaps. Rep-tiles are geometric figures such that n copies will tessellate. This means that each piece must fit together with NO gaps and NO overlaps.

Rep-Tiled A puzzle is a good example of a tessellation

Rep-tile Assignment: You will receive a piece of cardstock and a bag that contains five polygons. You will receive a piece of cardstock and a bag that contains five polygons. You are to begin by placing a DOT in the center of the page. Begin arranging the polygons around that point so that your design tessellates.
