On the template pages in this math art activity guide, each construction guideline represents a choice for the creative artist. Each page will be different for every person. And whenever you come back to the same template, you’ll discover a fresh design.

Print any template page and study the guidelines until you find a shape you like—perhaps a triangle, kite, or star. Trace it with your pencil. Then search out repetitions or rotations of your chosen shape. Look for a complementary shape between or overlapping the copies of your original discovery. Trace any additional lines you need to weave the shapes together into a design.

Some of the templates are based on classic Islamic tessellation patterns, others on geometric relationships that seem interesting.

What kind of tessellation art will you create?

This 30-page printable (pdf) activity book features twelve templates, each in two sizes, for endless creative play.

Available with 8 1/2 x 11 (letter size) or A4 pages.

For ages 10 and up.
