From Geometry to Escher: Teaching Tessellations in Math and Art (Professional Development)

From Geometry to Escher: Teaching Tessellations in Math and Art (Professional Development)

This hands-on, exciting workshop is designed to help teachers enhance the learning of tessellations by exploring the intersection of math and art. Math students discover new possibilities by expanding tessellations usually made from regular and semi-regular polygons while art students learn the geometric underpinnings in the work of graphic artist M. C. Escher. This program was developed as part of the Kennedy Center’s professional development initiative.
