A tessellation or tiling is the covering of a surface, often a plane, using one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. In mathematics, tessellation can be generalized to higher dimensions and a variety of geometries. A periodic tiling has a repeating pattern.

A Tessellation (or Tiling) is when we cover a surface with a pattern of flat shapes so that there are no overlaps or gaps. Examples: Rectangles Octagons and Squares Different Pentagons Regular Tessellations A regular tessellation is a pattern made by repeating a regular polygon. There are only 3 regular tessellations: Triangles Squares

What is a tessellation? A tessellation is when a geometric shape (or tile) repeats itself over and over again, covering a 2D or 3D surface without any gaps or overlaps. There are different styles of tessellations depending on the shapes used. The word ?tessellation? comes from the Latin term tessera meaning a small, tile-like stone.

The movements or rigid motions of the shapes that define tessellations are classified as translations, rotations, reflections, or glide reflections. Let?s first define these movements and then look at some examples showing how these transformations are revealed.

A regular tessellation means that the pattern is made up of congruent regular polygons, same size and shape, including some type of movement; that is, some type of transformation or symmetry. Here we consider the rigid motions of translations, rotations, reflections, or glide reflections.

A tessellation is a pattern of shapes repeated to fill a plane. The shapes do not overlap and there are no gaps. The figure above composed of squares is a tessellation since the are no gaps or overlaps between any 2 squares. The figure above composed of regular pentagons is not a tessellation since there are gaps between the tessellations in grey.

As researchers explored tessellations and defined them mathematically, they identified certain types that excel at solving difficult problems. One popular example is the Voronoi tessellation ( VT ) also known as the Dirichlet tessellation or the Thiessen polygons.
