Tessellations – Barcelona


Tessellations in Roof

I took this photograph whilst on holiday in Barcelona. It is the roof of a market.

What do you notice about the shapes on the roof?

Why do you think the shapes fit together perfectly?

How do you think you could show this mathematically?

Where else have you seen patterns that tessellate? Art?

Which other polygons will tessellate?
