Uncle Norm makes a giant hole in his workshop wall to get reception for his “secret device”. But now, he needs to fix the hole. Alanna’s interior designer friend has plenty of ideas. They check out tessellation designs – slides, flips and turns, to help give them ideas to create their own wallpaper to cover up the mess.
The Gist: This episode is about tessellations and transformational geometry (e.g. slides, flipsand turns), which provide visually rich opportunities to explore geometry, patterning, spatial sense/relationships and the integration of mathematics with the visual arts.
