Tessellating the Hexagon

In this tessellating a hexagon learning exercise, 10th graders complete 2 activities in creating a tessellation of a hexagon. They start off with the tessellation by the smallest pattern block and obtain other tessellations by replacing each two triangles with a rhombus and/or 3 triangles with a trapezoid. Students also replace hexagons with trapezoids and create more than one tessellation from it.
