# Panther Tessellation — Symétruc panthère

A challenge to help my Nephew understand the basic rules of tessellations for a math class. Wish I had been fortunate enough to get an opportunity like this when I was a teen. La leçon est en français à part de ça! Continue reading

# Which symmetry group to use?

Deciding which symmetry group to use for a specific design can be hit and miss. And try again. You can narrow it down Continue reading

# Symmetry Group Pm – alternating parallel mirrors

This symmetry group is the last one for me to tackle. It has been a year since I started tessellating again, since I found the KaleidoPaint iPad app. Continue reading

# Symmetry Group P6m — Perfect Snowflakes

It’s been a year last week, since I started drawing with the KaleidoPaint iPad app. I was avoiding this P6m symmetry group because of the tight space for drawing within and the abundance of mirrors. Continue reading

# Symmetry Group P2

There are only 17 methods to divide the two dimensional surface into true tessellations. These 17 rules were derived from the observation and study of crystallography, a long time ago.   Continue reading

# Sharing areas within a tessellation — dual purpose space

It’s so nice to share with your friends! Sometimes when I am drawing, Continue reading

# Symmetry Group Pmg

Are we ready for another creative brain gym session? These Pmg tessellations are built around one mirror, and two rotation points. There are also two indirectly implied glide reflections as a result mostly of the two way rotations. Continue reading

# Symmetry Group Pgg

This symmetry group is one of my favourites, as it uses glides as well as rotations in its construction. No mirrors here, so the tessellated figures do not need to be bilaterally symmetric constructs. Continue reading
