<<Woody or Sharon, how long does it take to complete this lesson?>>

Most students finished these in about 2 class periods; some took (and =
are taking) longer, and are wanting to experiment with more complex =
patterns. =20

Thanks for sharing your method of tessellations--I might try that, too! =
What you described is similar to the method that Jim O'Neill has posted =
on his tessellation demo. (I think you need to have flash to be able to =
see it.)

I chose to use Woody's plan because we had a limited time (we're on a =
trimester system now so we've got EXAMS this coming week!!) and I was =
looking for an interesting project that would tie in with Escher AND =
that could be completed in just a couple of days. Students were =
finishing up self-portraits and really enjoyed basically sitting and =
coloring for a change! We xeroxed the rhombus shape with their original =
design, and then colored them before cutting and arranging.
