Isn’t this a type of symmetry?


The student will demonstrate through the mathematical processes an understanding of proportional reasoning, tessellations, the use of geometric properties to make deductive arguments. Learn about areas of triangles and about the Cartesian coordinate system. Graph ordered pairs and customize the graph title and axis labels.

Model syodor connect the dots activity to the whole class on the computer using the Tessellate activity, a screen capture utility and a drawing program, but then distribute the Tessellations on Paper Worksheet to each student to complete individually. Enter data and view the mean, median, variance, and standard deviation of the data set.

Equivalent Fraction Pointer is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers. This activity and discussions may be used to develop students’ understanding of polygons and symmetry as well as their ability to analyze patterns and explore the role of mathematics in nature and our culture.

The tessellation activity could also be used teseellate explore spatial visualization and pattern recogni tion with the Visual Pattern Lesson. In this applet you can adjust the tsesellate on two Gaussian curves to determine if there is a possibility of a difference between the two means.


Interactivate: Tessellations: Geometry and Symmetry

Points are connected from left to right, rather than being connected in the order they are entered. This lesson allows students to examine tessellations and their geometric properties. Students play a generalized version of connect four, gaining the chance to place a piece on the board by answering arithmetic questions addition, subtraction, multiplication, division. Number of doors, number of trials, staying or switching between the two remaining doors. Learn about fractions between 0 and 1 by repeatedly deleting portions of a line segment, and also learn about properties of fractal objects.

Characteristic s observed in one item that may be repeated in similar or identical manners in other items. Start them by examining tessellations of regular polygons including number of sides and interior tesaellate measurements by using a data table. Encourage students to determine a pattern among the polygons that they tessellate. Step through the generation of a Hilbert Curve — a fractal made from deforming a line by bending ehodor, and explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals.

Ask students to identify tessellations that they see in their daily lives and in nature. This activity helps you understand how to balance an equation.

Congruence Experiment with transformations in the plane Understand congruence in terms of rigid motions. Operations and Algebraic Thinking Generate and analyze patterns.

The learner will use geometric and algebraic properties of figures to solve problems and write proofs. Follow-up by having the students write a concise definition for a regular polygon tessellation. Color numbers in Pascal’s Triangle by rolling a number and then clicking on all entries that are multiples of the number rolled, thereby practicing multiplication tables, investigating number patterns, and investigating fractal patterns.


That transformation would leave the pattern unchanged. Introduced to tessellations Learned about shodoor types of polygons Examined tessellating patterns ehodor the world around them.

Surface Area and Volume one of the Interactivate assessment explorers. View the graph shodir the equation of the line tangent to any function at any point on the function.

Test your algebra skills by answering questions. Arithmetic Four is one of the Interactivate teasellate games. Geometry The student will demonstrate through the mathematical processes an understanding of shape, location, and movement within a coordinate system; similarity, complementary, and supplementary angles; and the relationship between line and rotational symmetry.

Geometry and Measurement Competency Goal 2: Comparison Estimator is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

The student demonstrates a conceptual understanding of geometric drawings or constructions. Once the students have been allowed to share what they found, summarize the results of the tessellwte. Number of observations, range for observations, which statistics to view, identifiers for the data.

Also have them record what type of symmetries are present in each tessellation.
