Tessellation with Shapes

Students learn about tessellation with shapes.  More able students consider the angles of each shape.  Less able practise tessellating with triangles and quadrilaterals.The lesson begins by recapping the properties of quadrilaterals.  In the development phase they learn about the properties of tessellation and explore the meaning of infinity.  At the end of the lesson students are challenged to consider which shapes will and will not tessellate and why.

Differentiated Learning Objectives

  • All students should be able to tessellate with triangles and quadrilaterals.
  • Most students should be able to understand how to tessellate a shape.
  • Some students should be able to understand why a shape does not tessellate.
