tessellations of shapes made out of 'units' composed of a number of squares can be interesting to complete and then analyse for the various regularities

like:

- the symmetries of the resulting pattern
- a parallelogram or 'overlay' that shows the background structure of the tessellation
- the vectors that are used to move the 'units' to create a tessellation

different tessellations of the same pentomino

ways to start out on a pentomino tessellation

one way to create a tessellation with this pentomino

joining some corresponding corners gives a parallelogram

moving along the lines of the tessellation between the corners of the parallelogram - what do you notice?
