Lesson Plan: Tessellations of Polygons Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to identify which polygons can form a tessellation and the geometric transformations applied to it.


Students will be able to

  • identify which regular polygons will tessellate by themselves by considering the measure of their internal angles,
  • identify whether an irregular polygon can tessellate by itself,
  • identify whether different types of polygons can tessellate,
  • find the measure of a missing angle in a given tessellation.


Students should already be familiar with

  • regular polygons and the measure of their internal angles.


Students will not cover

  • tessellations with shapes other than polygons.
