This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 2, Unit 9, Grade 8. The goal of this activity is to accurately describe a tessellation of the plane. While students do not need to use the words translation, rotation, or reflection, their understanding of rigid motions of the plane will play a key role in explaining (and interpreting) where to place each shape in a tessellation.
