For this project, you will create your own Escher-style tessellation. Your

tessellation should be your own original creation. This project calls for

creativity, precision, and careful attention to detail.



Start by reading section 12-6: Tessellations in your course book. Pay careful

attention to the Investigation on page 669 for instructions for creating

tessellations.



Once you understand how a tile is created for a tessellation, practice making

your own tile. What unique shapes or objects can you create?



Your job for this project is to create a poster that illustrates a tessellation that

you have designed. The poster should be no smaller than 22” x 14”. On the

back of your poster, please include a sample of the tile that your project is

based on. Also, you must use at least two different colors in your tessellation.



* A prize will be given for the best tessellation project. Mr. Barrette, Mr.

Grunerud, and Mr. Jemes will pick the winning tessellation.
