Maths- Tessellations, rotational symmetry and art


This week the students have been learning a bit about geometric properties. We look at what symmetrical means and where we find it in real life. The students found out how to find lines of symmetry and what it means to have rotational symmetry. By looking at the work of MC Escher the students began making their own tessellating shape patterns using regular shapes and creating their own jigsaw pieces. The jigsaw pieces were made by drawing a random squiggle on one side of a square piece of card and then sticking it to the vertically opposite side. I hope you agree the work they have produced is pretty amazing!
