Fractiles’ Mandala, Based on Angles of Pi/7 Radians
Although this was based on something I constructed using the Fractiles7 magnetic tiling toy, I did not have enough magnetic pieces to finish this. The idea was, therefore, converted into a (nonEuclidean) construction using Geometer’s Sketchpad, and then refined using … Continue reading

Octagons Can Tile a Plane III
Unlike my previous octagontiling discoveries (see previous post), this is a chiral, radial tessellation, with the colors chosen to highlight that fact.

OrderSix Radial Tessellations of the Plane, Using Elongated and Equilateral Hexagons, Rendered with Different ColoringSchemes
I explored radial tessellations of the plane, using only hexagons, in this earlier post. Orderthree tessellations of this type are the familiar regularhexagon tessellations of the plane. With higherorder allhexagon radial tessellations, though, the hexagons must be elongated, although they … Continue reading

A Radial Tessellation of Regular Decagons and Bowtie Hexagons
This tilingpattern could be continued indefinitely, while still maintaining its fivefold radial symmetry, giving it the overall appearance of a pentagon.

A Radial Tessellation Including Regular Pentagons and Hexagons, As Well As Expanding GapPolygons
Radial tessellations are described in the previous post. This is a continuation of the idea, but with both regular pentagons and hexagons included. As before, the largest resulting gappolygons expand as one recedes from the center.
