"Math in Art: Tessellations I"
Friday, August 26
3:00 pm to 3:45 pm ET (New York)
Discover the wonderful world of tessellations! Explore how geometric shapes can completely cover a plane with no gaps or overlaps and discover where tessellations appear: in nature, in ancient Roman mosaics, in Islamic art and architecture, in quilting patterns, and in the works of modern artists such as M.C. Escher. Join us to build your own tessellations with regular polygons in this first offering in the Math in Art series.
Materials needed: pencil, paper, scissors, and printout to be provided. Optional materials: pattern blocks set.
This is a live-streamed event. Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
