# Tessellation Artist

Mathematics and Art come together!

## Instructions

First - just play with it! Try the different tools and see what happens.

### Tiling Directions

You can control the spacing of the tiles by altering the two tiling directions.

Try tiling in one direction only:

Now tile in two directions:

Now try differemt numbers, pressing "Re-Tile" after each change to see the effect. If you need to make the pattern exact, you may have to do some calculations first!

### Polygons

You can draw regular polygons using the polygon tool. Choose the number of sides, from 3 (Triangles) to 20 (Icosagons). You may also need to adjust the angle to get the desired effect.

 Octagons, Angle=0 Octagons, Angle=22.5

### Nudge and Undo

After adding a shape, you can "Nudge" it into place, or adjust its size. This only works on the shape you just added. You can also use "Undo" to remove the last shape.

### What Can You Make?

You can make all kinds of interesting patterns! Have a look at the Tessellation page - there are lots of examples of tiling patterns that were made using tessellation artist (some color was added using a simple paint program).
