Tiling Triangles

Definition
When you fit individual tiles together with no gaps or overlaps to fill a flat space likea ceiling, wall, or floor, you have a
tiling
. You can imagine that you can use a varietyof shapes to do this.Here are some examples:

nother word for a tiling is a
tessellation
What is a Tessellation?

A
special kind of tiling or tessellation is rep-tiling. No, these
rep-tiles
aren't livingthings, although some of you might be thinking of the figures in some of M.C.Escher's work. The "rep" in "rep-tile" stands for "replicating." Rep-tiles can be joinedtogether to make larger replicas of themselves. Learn more here:Reptilesby

Penrose tiling
named after the British physicist and mathematician,Roger Penrose.The tiling is comprised of two rhombi,

one with angles of 36 and 144 degrees and one with angles of 72 and 108 degrees.Learn more here:

Once they have used Escher's tessellations to explore the transformations that can be used tocreate tessellating art, students are given the opportunity to create their own artwork on acomputer with
TesselMania!
or
Tessellation Exploration
software. Within either  program, they select a polygon and a modifying rule or rules. Whenever a "bump" or "hole"is added to a side, the program removes or adds the corresponding "hole" or "bump" from/tothe appropriate side according to the rule selected. Classic paint tools, including stamps, areavailable for adding interior interpreting features.Depending on the program, the corresponding tessellation either accompanies thetessellating shape or appears at the press of a button.

Each student's original artwork can be printed on transfer material suitable for color  bubblejet printers, and then ironed onto a T-shirt. The results are truly outstanding!
