Say something like this: We shodo going to use the computers to learn about tessellations, but please do not turn your computers on until I ask you to.

Positive Linear Function Machine is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers. Forest density, wind direction, size of forest.

Lead a discussion about tessellations in the world. Rotations always have a center, and an angle of rotation.

Change the median and standard deviation of an automatically generated normal distribution to create a skewed distribution, allowing you to observe properties like what it means for the mean, median, and mode to be different.

Run a simulation to generate results from running the Monty Hall for multiple trials. Learn how each constant and coefficient affects the resulting graph. Key Terms polygon A closed plane figure formed by three or more line segments that do not cross over each other tessellation A tessellation is a repeated geometric design that covers a plane without gaps or overlaps.


Students investigate linear functions with positive slopes by trying to guess the slope and intercept from inputs and outputs. Experiment with the outcome distribution for a roll of two dice by simulating a dice throwing game.

Interactivate: Activities

Students must be able to: Alternate Outline This lesson can be rearranged in several ways if there is only one available computer: Introduced to tessellations Learned about several types of polygons Examined tessellating patterns in the world around them Standards Addressed: Student must be able to: Number and color of marbles in the bag, replacement rule.

This kind of symmetry is called a translation. Geometry Analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems. Allow students time to practice their knowledge about tessellations.

Let groups of two or three students complete the worksheet using the computer while you present the other information to the remaining students, and rotate through groups of students. This activity helps you understand how to balance an equation. Once the students have been allowed to share what they found, summarize the results of the lesson. Test your estimation skills by answering questions.

Number of observations, range for observations, which statistics to view, identifiers for the data. Algebra Quiz is one of the Interactivate assessment quizzes.


Visual Patterns in Tessellations

Learn about the vertical line test for functions by trying to connect points in the plane to build a function. Tessellate The student demonstrates conceptual understanding of similarity, congruence, symmetry, or transformations of shapes. Enter a complex value for “c” in the form of an ordered pair of real numbers. He was responsible for works such as Reptiles, Horseman and many more that incorporated the use ofd tessellations.

Recognize regular polygons, such as triangles, rectangles and hexagons Understand the difference between an edge and a corner Technological: Use the computer to model the tessellations, and have the class complete the worksheet together with you. Tables and Chairs is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers. Grade 9 Geometry The student demonstrates an understanding of geometric relationships.

So, you are right, some tessellations don’t have a line of symmetry: Encourage students to determine a pattern among the polygons that they tessellate. Finally, see what they already know about color and optical illusions and how they affect perception. Also discuss the use of color in tessellations. There are also built in data sets which can be viewed.
