Tessellation Trial and Error

In this interactive lesson, students review attributes of equilateral polygons. They are introduced to the concept of a tessellation. Using protractors and pre-cut shapes, students arrange a variety of tiles to create tessellations. They measure each angle of a triangle, and record the sum of angles of the shapes who have touching vertex.
