There is no such thing as a seni-regular tessellation. A semi-regular tessllation is a tessellation using two regular polygons: for example, octagons and squares together.

A tessellation that uses more than one type of regular polygon

No. See, for example, the top image in the attached link.

A regular tessellation is one in which a plane is covered, without gaps or overlaps, using copies of a regular polygon.

No a pentagon is a single polygonal shape, A tessellation is a scheme for covering a plane, without gaps of overlaps, using multiple copies of the same basic shape. These are usually polygons.

No, regular polygons are always convex and are shapes constructed using straight lines. concave polygons are irregular.

No, it is using multiple copies of a shape, usually polygons, so as to cover a plane without gaps or overlaps.

A tessellation or tiling of the plane is a collection of plane figures that fills the plane with no overlaps and no gaps. One may also speak of tessellations of the parts of the plane or of other surfaces. Generalizations to higher dimensions are also possible. Tessellations frequently appeared in the art of M C Escher. Tessellations are seen throughout art history, from ancient architecture to Modern Art.A regular tessellation is a highly symmetric tessellation made up of congruent regular polygons. Only three regular tessellations exist: those made up of equilateral triangles, squares or hexagons. A semiregular tessellation uses a variety of regular polygons; there are eight of these. The arrangement of polygons at every vertex point is identical. An edge-to-edge tessellation is even less regular: the only requirement is that adjacent tiles only share full sides, i.e. no tile shares a partial side with any other tile. Other types of tessellations exist, depending on types of figures and types of pattern. There are regular versus irregular, periodic versus aperiodic, symmetric versus asymmetric, and fractal tessellations, as well as other classifications.Penrose tiling using two different polygons are the most famous example of tessellations that create aperiodic patterns. They belong to a general class of aperiodic tilings that can be constructed out of self-replicating sets of polygons by using recursion.

No. Regular tessellations use only one polygon. And, according to the strict definition of regular tessellation, the polygon must be regular. Then a tessellation using rectangles, for example, cannot be called regular.

Yes. Bees are extremely good at tessellating regular hexagons in a honeycomb.

semi regular tessellations are made by using two or more regular shapes. Every vertex must have the exact same configuration.

Tessellation is defined as the tiling of a plane using one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. In mathematics, tessellations can be generalized to higher dimensions. A periodic tiling has a repeat pattern. A regular quadrilateral can be used by itself to make a tessellation.

Squares or rectangles.Answer:Shapes which can be tiled (fit together without spaces or overlaps) are said to exhibit tessellation. These can be as simple as two dimensional shapes (squares and triangles) or as complex as the drawings by M.C. Escher who made tiles of birds and fishes.In general tiling shapes can be regular polygons (all the same) or mixtures of different shapes of regular polygons. More exotic shapes are developed by mathematicians. These include tiles using irregular polygons and three dimensional shapes.

A tessellation is a method for using copies of a single shape to cover a plane surface without gaps or overlaps. Semi-regular tessellations use two (or more) shapes.

Tessellation consists of covering a plane using copies of a shape (usually a polygon) so that there are no gaps or overlaps. The study of properties of a plane and plane shapes - whether polygons or other 2-d shapes are all part of geometry.

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

Tessellation involves using copies of a shape, usually a polygon, to cover a plane surface without gaps or overlaps. The study of plane surfaces and regular shapes are part of geometry and, therefore, of mathematics.

No. Because tessellation is about using lost (infinitely many) copies of a polygon to cover a surface, One polygon does not comprise a tessellation.

No. Each interior angle of a regular pentagon is 108 degrees. In order for tessellation to be possible, the sum of the angles meeting at a point must be 360 degrees. That is to ensure that all the space around that point is covered. But 108 is not a factor of 360 so it is not possible.

A semi-regular tessellation is using multiple copies of two (or more) regular polygons so as to cover a plane without gaps or overlaps. The different shapes have sides of the same length and the shapes meet at vertices in the same (or exact reverse) order.The image used with this question:http://file2.answcdn.com/answ-cld/image/upload/w_300,h_115,c_fill,g_face:center,q_60,f_jpg/v1401482497/u6cbkstcqpiibq3485hr.pnguses a regular quadrilateral (a square) and an equilateral triangle. At each vertex, these two shapes, starting with the shape at the top, meet in the following order: TSTTS ot STTST.

Semi-regular tessellation is using multiple copies of a few (more than one) basic shapes to cover a plane space without gaps or overlaps.
