Tessellations are created with very special shapes that fit together when repeated in a pattern. After researching many materials dealing with tessellation, I was dissatisfied with their usefulness as teaching resources...So I made my own. This product features 44 pages of worksheets, templates, instructions, and examples. I've illustrated numerous methods for creating tiles that tessellate in a project that is simple enough for young beginners yet provides endless challenges for advanced students. Creating a tessellation is a great project for math or art class. This project addresses creativity, polygons, symmetry, reflection, rotation, mechanical drawing and more.
Aestheometry means the beauty of geometry. A conspicuous element is the creation of an implied curve through the use of only straight lines. You may have seen a form of aestheometry in what is typically known as string art. This project creates the same type of design using colored pencil or felt pen. Metallic colored pencils show up great on black paper. This project set will guide your students toward the mastery of this process. My students spend around three weeks practicing and creating a couple of these designs. But one could adapt a much quicker completion time if desired. This is a project that looks complex but it will surprise you how simple it actually is. Students catch on quickly and begin to add their own creative spin on their designs. But it takes some on-task time and that is what this package provides. 44 pages of informative handouts, worksheets, and examples. Cross-curricular with math and geometry.
