patterns of tiles. What patterns do

you see in the design?

Many mosaic tile designs are made

from shapes that cover the area, or

the plane, without overlapping or

leaving gaps. These patterns are

called tiling patterns or tessellations .

Covering the plane in this way is

called tiling the plane .

**Which shapes can you use to tile or tessellate the plane?

Explain why some regular shapes tile the plane but others do not. regular hexagon. Trace the outline of the triangle again. a) Predict whether the shape will tile the plane.1 Exploring Tessellations With Regular and Irregular Polygons • MHR 12_ML8_Chapter12_8th. 6. b) Try to tile the plane with the shape. Continue to see if the shape tiles the plane. 2. 12.Select an equilateral triangle block. Record your results in the table.indd 447 447 4/9/08 4:08:10 PM . regular pentagon. • set of pattern blocks. a) 3. Trace the outline of the equilateral triangle. c) Repeat steps 5a) and 5b) using an irregular pentagon and an irregular hexagon of your own design. • • • • • or cardboard cutouts of pattern block shapes protractor cardboard cutouts of an isosceles triangle. 4. a) Literacy Link The term plane means a twodimensional flat surface that extends in all directions. 5. Cut out the shape of an irregular quadrilateral. Move the triangle to a new position. Record your conclusion in the table. Hint: Look at the interior angle measures. square. Is this a regular or irregular polygon? Record your answer in the table. Is there a pattern? b) Explain why some irregular shapes tile the plane but others do not. b) Measure each interior angle and record your measurements in the table. so that the two triangles share a common side. a regular pentagon.

The shape can be used to tessellate the plane. 96º 96º 96º 96º What other possible arrangements of the pentagons can you find? Do they overlap or leave gaps? Check: Each of the interior angles where the vertices of the polygons meet is 96°. a) b) 96º 90º 90º 90º 90º Shape A 116º 116º 106º 106º Shape B Solution a) Arrange the squares along a common side. The sum of the four angles is 96° + 96° + 96° + 96º = 384º. The sum of the four angles is 90° + 90° + 90° + 90° = 360°. b) Arrange the pentagons along a common side.indd 448 4/9/08 4:08:11 PM . The shape cannot be used to tessellate the plane. This is more than a full turn. 90º 90º 90º 90º Check: Each of the interior angles where the vertices of the polygons meet is 90°. 448 MHR • Chapter 12 12_ML8_Chapter12_8th. Shape B cannot be used to tessellate the plane. The rotated squares do not overlap or leave gaps when you try to form them into a tessellation.Example: Identify Shapes That Tessellate the Plane Do these polygons tessellate the plane? Explain why or why not. This is equal to a full turn. Shape A can be used to tessellate the plane. The irregular pentagons overlap or leave gaps when you try to form them into a tessellation.

1 Exploring Tessellations With Regular and Irregular Polygons • MHR 12_ML8_Chapter12_8th. • Regular and irregular polygons tessellate the plane when the interior angle measures total exactly 360° at the point where the vertices of the polygons meet. Should she choose ceramic tiles in the shape of a regular octagon? Explain how you know. • Only three types of regular polygons tessellate the plane. What are two types of irregular polygons that can be used to tessellate the plane? Explain your choices to a friend.indd 449 449 4/9/08 4:08:11 PM . Draw three types of regular polygons that tessellate the plane. • Some types of irregular polygons tessellate the plane. 3. a) 105º b) 125º 130º 120º 120º 120º 60º 60º c) 50º 120º 120º 70º 60º • A tiling pattern or tessellation is a pattern that covers a plane without overlapping or leaving gaps.Which of the following shapes can be used to tessellate the plane? Explain your reasoning. 2. Megan is tiling her kitchen floor. 90º 90º 90º 90º 90º + 90º + 90º + 90º = 360º 105º 75º 105º 75º 105º + 75º + 75º + 105º = 360º 1. Justify your choices. 12.

Describe three tessellating patterns that you see at home or at school. 4.9. What shapes make up the tessellation? 8. 7. Describe two different tessellation patterns that Jared could use. For help with #4 to #7. b) Compare your pentagon with those of your classmates. Tessellate the plane with an isosceles triangle. a) b) On grid paper. How many different tessellating pentagons did you and your classmates find? 11. 5. Show and colour the result on grid paper. 450 10. MHR • Chapter 12 12_ML8_Chapter12_8th. Patios are often made from interlocking rectangular bricks. Use colours or shading to create an interesting design on grid paper. refer to the Example on page 448. a) Describe a pentagon that will tessellate the plane. 6. Explain how it tessellates the plane. The pattern shown below is called herringbone. Do these regular polygons tessellate the plane? Explain why or why not. Some pentagons can be used to tessellate the plane. A pentomino is a shape made up of five squares. Do each of your pentominoes make a tessellation? Explain why or why not. create two different patio designs from congruent rectangular bricks. Use triangular dot paper to help you describe the tessellations. Jared is painting a mosaic on one wall of her bedroom that is made up of tessellating equilateral triangles.indd 450 4/9/08 4:08:12 PM . Choose two of the following pentominoes and try to make a tessellation with each one. Use this shape to tessellate the plane.

a) Describe the four shapes. The result is another tessellation.12. A dot has been added to the centre of each square. 13.1 Exploring Tessellations With Regular and Irregular Polygons • MHR 12_ML8_Chapter12_8th. MATH LINK This tiling pattern is from Alhambra. Colour your designs. 12. Use each of the four shapes in your mosaics. Use grid paper to create two different designs that Sarah might use. Draw and describe its dual. which is called the dual of the original tessellation. Many Islamic artists make very intricate geometric decorations and are experts at tessellation art. Are they regular or irregular polygons? b) Use templates to trace the shapes onto cardboard or construction paper. She wants to use a regular polygon in the design and three different colours. Identify two different regular polygons that can be used together to create a tessellating pattern.ca and follow the links. a) 14.indd 451 451 4/9/08 4:08:13 PM . Spain. Describe the dual of the original square tessellation. The dots are joined by dashed segments perpendicular to common sides. b) Draw a tessellation of regular hexagons.mathlinks8. Web Link To generate tessellations on the computer. The diagram shows a tessellation of squares. Sarah is designing a pattern for the hood and cuffs of her new parka. go to www. a Moorish palace built in Granada. Draw a tessellation on grid paper using the two polygons. c) Draw a tessellation of equilateral triangles. Draw and describe its dual. Four different tile shapes are used to create this pattern. c) Cut out ten of each shape and use some or all of them to create at least two different tile mosaics.
