What's Regular About Tessellations?

Students explore the concept of tessellations. In this tessellations lesson, students determine which regular polygons will tessellate and which ones will not. Students use an applet to construct tessellations to test their conjectures. Students use interior angle measures to aid in their determining whether or not a polygon will tessellate.

Lesson Planet has helped me with my lesson plans as a student teacher. There are so many creative lesson plans available which is a huge help to someone like me who has very little experience at this point in time and I am in need of ideas and activities to help get me started in the classroom.
