  • Engaging Preservice Teachers and Elementary-Age Children in Transformational Geometry: Tessellating T-Shirts

    Tod L. Shockey and Karen Snyder
    Elementary-age children and preservice teachers learn about and use transformational geometry and creating tessellations. Tessellations and transformational geometry are taught two both groups in different ways. The elementary children create a T-shirt made from tessellations, whereas, the preservice teacher makes real world connections.
