Jo Edkins Geometries

Tilings and Tessellations from Cambridge, England

A tessellation is the tiling of a plane using geometric shapes called tiles and it has no gaps or overlaps.

In our search of the web for images of tetrahedrons and tessellations or tilings of triangles, squares and hexagons, there were thousands of possibilities. Among the best were these very clean images from Jo Edkins, especially made for teachers.

Jo is from the original Cambridge in England and loves geometry. She has encouraged us in our work and, of course, we thank her and her family’s wonderful creativity and generosity of spirit.
