Math 2023 1 Pattern Blocks Pattern blocks come in six shapes: Using Pattern Blocks, determine which of the following polygons can be used to tessellate the plane without using the other polygons. 1. How many equilateral triangles are used to form the following shapes? Draw a picture. a) the large rhombus b) the trapezoid c) the hexagon 2. Form each shape with your pattern blocks and sketch it. a) Use several large rhombi to form a b) Use several small rhombi to form a star. Determine the measurement of star. Determine the measurement of each angle within the large rhombus. each angle within the small rhombus. Pattern Block Polygon

Unformatted text preview: Does it tessellate? Equilateral Triangle (green) Square (orange) Rhombus (white) Rhombus (blue) Isosceles Trapezoid (red) Regular Hexagon (yellow) Math 2023 2 3. Below is the tumbling block pattern used in many quilts. Can you see the blocks? This pattern is actually just one rhombus shape rotated and shaded using two different colors. What do the angles of the rhombus measure within this pattern? 4. Below is a pattern created by mathematician Roger Penrose. Two different rhombus shapes were used one shaded and one not. Draw a picture of each rhombus and label the angle measurements for each angle....
