New tessellation discovered

New tessellation discovered: "Article: New tessellation discovered

         If you wanted a really cool bathroom, what shape would you use for the tiles? Squares will work, or rectangles, or even hexagons. But can we use five-sided tiles? You may not know them, but there are a whole range of pentagonal tiling shapes. And a few weeks ago, mathematicians found a new one to join them."



Cool! You probably will be looking at tessellations in math class this year.  You can wow your math teacher with this!
