**Title:** Math Makes a Connection: Patterns with Polygons

**Description:**
In this interactive website, students use polygons to construct tessellations.

**Standard(s): **

[MA2013] (0) 18: Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size. [K-G2]

[MA2013] (0) 22: Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. [K-G6]

[MA2013] (1) 20: Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape. (Students do not need to learn formal names such as "right rectangular prism.") [1-G2]

[MA2013] (2) 24: Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. (Sizes are compared directly or visually, not compared by measuring.) Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes. [2-G1]
