In this tessellations worksheet, 10th graders complete 8 various types of problems related to a tessellation of the plane by regular polyhedral. First, they draw the vertex figures for each of three regular tessellations and determine whether they are the same at every vertex. Then, students extend each tessellation, draw the vertex figures, and decide if the tessellation is regular and explain why.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
