Product Id: 34325
Unlike typical puzzles, there isn't a final picture to reach with the Kites & Darts Tessellation pack. The two different shaped pieces fit together in a unique geometric style that allows the puzzler to create an array of eye-catching patterns. These shapes, also known as Penrose tiles after their inventor, are famous among math heads everwhere! The pieces have small holes which indicate matching rules that force the patterns to be non-repeating. Among the many intriguing properties of these tiles is the way in which the Golden Ratio crops up over and over again.

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.
