This book contains two pages of background material about tessellations, an activities example page, plus 24 pages of tessellations in which the individual tiles are regular polygons.
There are five activities that may be performed for each page:
1) Identifying the different types of tiles in the design;
2) Identifying the unit cell for the design (the group of tiles that can be repeated to cover the plane);
3) Marking the different types of symmetry the design possesses;
4) Identifying the distinct types of vertices in the design;
5) Colouring the design.
