Program Description   What is the difference between a regular tessellation and a semi-pure tessellation? Where does the term "tessellation" originate, and what is the sum of angles around one vertex in a tessellation of the plane by polygons? Treat your class to an art-filled math experience using museum objects and patterned surfaces to explore different math concepts about tessellations and polygons. Students are introduced to a mummy case, an Islamic prayer niche, an Escher print and other works while learning to identify various tessellations using a viewing guide included in the Teacher Information Packet, which accompanies the videoconference.
Program Format   1. Discuss definition of tessellations, and examples students have seen (tiled floors, quilts, etc).
2. Define math terminology, such as polygon, regular polygon, and regular tessellation.
3. Introduce works from the museum with examples of regular tessellations.
4. Students work on math viewing guide throughout the program.
5. Discuss regular vs. non-regular tessellations, and look at non-regular examples, including M.C. Escher’s work.
6. View and discuss examples of semi-regular and demi-regular tessellations.
Objectives   1. How different cultures have used math and tessellations in their work.
2. The difference between the many types of tessellations.
3. How math can be used to create art.
