What are tessellations? A tessellation is a series of shapes that cover a plane without any gaps. It could be like the tile in your shower.

This concept was turned into art by M. C. Escher. More background can be found at the related link below.

M.C. Escher was famous for his use of tessellations.

Regular tessellations can be made using triangles, squares, and hexagons.

Some facts on tessellations are that there are different types of tessellations such as regular and semi-regular. In tessellations, each vertex will have a sum of 360ร‚ยบ which is what all of the angles should come out to.

there are 8 possible semi-regular tessellations :) hop i can helpp .

There are eight different types of semiregular tessellations. Also called Archimedean tessellations, they occur when two or more convex regular polygons form tessellations of the plane in a way each polygon vertex is surrounded by the same polygons and in the same order.

All tessellations, involve inlaying, its the materials used and the designs applied that make the difference.

They can be but need not be.

He didn't. Tessellations are seen throughout art history, from ancient architecture to modern art.

he made lots of tessellations like birds, fish, stairs, people, faces

Tessellations are are shapes being put together by fitting them in with each other example a honey comb is a tesselation. Anyway constuction workers could use Tessellations by using tiles for a floor or wall

Non-regular tessellations is a tessellation in which there is no restriction on the order of the polygons around vertices. There is an infinite number of such tessellations. These are tessellations with nonregular simple convex or concave polygons. All triangles and quadrilaterals will tessellate. Some pentagons and hexagons will.

They can be but need not be.

A tessellation occurs and relates to math with shapes that recur. Tessellations are shapes that are repeated continuously and cover a certain part of a plane.

That would be M.C.Escher. No, he did not invent them, but developed them.

I am not aware of anyone who pitches tessellations.

A sub-division of space into discrete elements. Raster surfaces sub-divide space into regular tessellations such as pixels. Polygons are examples of irregular tessellations.
