symmetry and tesselation

Symmetry and Tessellation (Eric Sun)

Today in class we learnt about the properties of symmetry
where we tested different methods such
as rotation, reflectional, scale symmetry and translational symmetry. Tessellation
can be found within games. A chess board consisting of 64 squares, with 2
alternating colours (usually a dark colour and
a light colour) feature a tessellation of squares, unlike a beehive, with its hexagons
and relatively same colours. It was amazing to see and create the scale
symmetry with my own shape, which could be made smaller or bigger depending on
the scale chosen on my ruler. The completed
shape with the spirals joined, although what started off as something simple,
turned out to produce something complex.
