Activity: tesselations [lo 1.8]

24. TESSELLATIONS

24.1 Did you know?

When a surface is covered by tiles so that there are no gaps left between the tiles, and no tiles overlap, the pattern that is made is called a tessellation, e.g.

We say the form tessellates.

24.2 Do you think ALL polygons will tessellate? __________ Motivate your answer.

24.3 Use a combination of polygons, e.g. a triangle and a square and design a floor covering for a kitchen or bathroom. It must tessellate! Colour it in neatly.

25. Time for self-assessment

  • Colour in the face that shows your ability:
I was able to group different triangles according to their characteristics.
I can explain the following concepts:
  • acute-angled triangle
  • equilateral triangle
  • obtuse-angled triangle
  • isosceles triangle
  • right-angles triangle
  • scalene triangle
  • symmetry
  • tessellations
I can indicate the axes of symmetry of figures.
I can draw a pattern with shapes that tessellate.

26. Can you improve the mark you got in the previous mental test? Try to complete this one in 2 minutes.

a) 16 + 19 + 15 = ____________

b) 28 + 36 + 41 = ____________

c) 1 009 – 16 = ____________

d) 1 012 – 17 = ____________

e) ____________ x 8 = 96

f) 9 x ____________ = 108

g) 84 ÷ 7 = ____________

h) 63 ÷ ____________= 9

i) 10 5 ÷ 103 = ____________

j) 10³ x 102 = ____________

k) 43 ÷ 8 = ____________

l) 59 ÷ 6 = ____________

m) 78 ÷ 9 = ____________

n) 86 ÷ 9 = ____________

o) 53 ÷ 7 = ____________

27. CHALLENGE!

  • See if you can get the following correct

27.1 Arrange 20 toothpicks to form seven squares (see sketch). Move three toothpicks so that only five squares of the same size are left.

27.2 Arrange your toothpicks as shown in the example below. Move only two so that you form a parallelogram and three rhombuses.

27.3 Trace the following pieces of a tangram onto a folio sheet and cut them out neatly. (You may use a tangram if you have one in the class.)

Use all the pieces and build a cat in as many different ways as possible!

Assessment

Learning Outcome 1: The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent numbers and their relationships, and to count, estimate, calculate and check with competence and confidence in solving problems.

Assessment Standard 1.8: We know this when the learner performs mental calculations involving squares of natural numbers to at least 10 2 and cubes of natural numbers to at least 5 3 .

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
