The Wonderful World of Escher

Bridging art and math can be as easy as making tessellations. The art, context, and life of M.C. Escher is explained to the class, as is the concept of tessellations. After a bit of art history, pupils get out the ruler, tape, and pencils to create tessellations of their own. The entire step-by-step process is included as are several great web links.
