Title: Tessellations: Tiling
Url: http://enlvm.usu.edu/ma/nav/activity.jsp?sid=nlvm&cid=4_3&lid=163
Publisher: Utah State University.
Description: Presented by Utah State University, this interactive online math lesson teaches students about geometry and tessellations by "using regular and semi-regular tessellations to tile the plane." The java-based activity allows students to create their own tessellations using triangles, polygons, squares, and octagons. Instructions for individual practice are given on the right side of the screen, and students are allowed to work at their own pace. It's an excellent in-class or homework activity for any geometry classroom.
