The author regards math as the study of patterns and in this book provides over 30 activities to teach and reinforce these concepts. She introduces the topics of symmetry, polygons, and tesselations in challenging activities that use a variety of materials and feature the art of M.C Escher. Some activities enable students to independently create their own tesselations. The book includes 100 blackline masters as well as a sample set of plastic mirrors, a sheet of tessellating shapes, and dot paper. This is the first book in a new series called Investigating Patterns.
