Unlike typical puzzles, there isn't a final picture to reach with the Tessel-gons Tessellation pack. Rather the different pieces fit together in a unique geometric style that allows the puzzler to create an array of eye-catching patterns. There are 5 different shaped pieces, all of which are a kind of regular polygon with one inch sides, and they come in a couple different colors.
The combination of art and math involved stimulates creativity; tessellations are simple enough for children as young as 5 but can be challenging and interesting for adults as well. Discover beautiful geometric patterns with almost endless variety.
