Some patterns are pictorial whereas others are based on geometrical patterns.

For celebrations the patterns may be made on the door-step from ground rice, lentils, split peas, seeds and perfumed red powder. In this way every one coming into the house would pass over the pattern and have good luck. After a design has been drawn on dotted paper it can be used as a basis for collage work, block printing, embroidery or batik work. Another type of Rangoli pattern is called mendhi. Mendhi is a mixture of henna, lemon juice and water which is used by women to decorate their hands and feet with Rangoli patterns during festivals and at weddings.

Henna painting is also used frequently by Muslim women during the festival of Eid and at weddings. Rangoli patterns help to develop pupils' concepts of symmetry, reflection and tessellation as well as recognition and properties of 2-dimensional shapes. Symmetry. Symmetry. Definition of Symmetry.

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. Polygons You can draw regular polygons using the polygon tool. Nudge and Undo After adding a shape, you can "Nudge" it into place, or adjust its size. What Can You Make? You can make all kinds of interesting patterns! Totally Tessellated. As of July 1, 2013 ThinkQuest has been discontinued.

What are tessellations? Basically, a tessellation is a way to tile a floor (that goes on forever) with shapes so that there is no overlapping and no gaps. Remember the last puzzle you put together?

Well, that was a tessellation! The shapes were just really weird. We usually add a few more rules to make things interesting! RULE #1: The tessellation must tile a floor (that goes on forever) with no overlapping or gaps. What can we tessellate using these rules? Triangles? Notice what happens at each vertex! The interior angle of each equilateral triangle is 60 degrees..... 60 + 60 + 60 + 60 + 60 + 60 = 360 degrees Squares? What happens at each vertex? 90 + 90 + 90 + 90 = 360 degrees again! So, we need to use regular polygons that add up to 360 degrees. Will pentagons work? The interior angle of a pentagon is 108 degrees. . . 108 + 108 + 108 = 324 degrees . . . Hexagons? 120 + 120 + 120 = 360 degrees Yep! Heptagons? No way!! Octagons? They'll overlap too. It breaks the vertex rule! Create interactive flash tools / games for education.
