PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Incorporate STEAM in your classroom by combining technology with math and art! This unit teaches students the geometry of tessellations by combining art and math. First, students learn about what tessellations are and their history, as well as the math behind them as they answer questions by searching for the information on the Internet in a WebQuest. Next, they create tessellations following a step-by-step tutorial in MS PowerPoint. After creating three simple tessellations following the steps, they create a tessellation of their own and write a short paragraph explaining the math in their design.

For classrooms that don’t have access to technology (or teachers who prefer to do this without using technology), starter tessellation handouts (editable) are included so students can do the design portions on paper. This is perfect for a technology class, a math class, or an art class. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be adapted for older students.
