Mathematics essentials 10 Geometry
Specific Curriculum Outcomes
E1 identify the first 5 regular polygons and understand basic properties (# of sides, lines of symmetry, and definitions of geometric terms)
E2 describe and apply translations, reflections, rotations, and dilatations as they relate to symmetry and design, with the aid of technology
E3 determine (through investigations, using concrete materials and technology) the characteristics of shapes that will tile the plane with a reflecting pattern
E4 create designs involving tiling patterns (e.g., Eschertype designs, wallpaper or fabric designs), using technology (e.g., dynamic geometry software, design or drawing software)
E5 analyse the geometric aspects of logos and design
E6 create a personal logo, using the mathematics of symmetry, translations, reflections, rotations, or dilations, with the aid of technology

Activities
 Investigating Tessellations Using Pattern Blocks from MathForum  Students using pattern blocks to discover which regular polygons will tessellate a plane, that is which combinations of regular polygons will completely surround a point.
