Beginning the Fractiles7 Refrigerator Experiment
To begin this experiment, I first purchased two refrigeratorsized Fractiles7 sets (available at http://fractiles.com/), and then, early on a Sunday, quietly arranged these rhombusshaped magnets on the refrigerator in our apartment (population: 4, which includes two math teachers and two teenagers), … 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.

Octagons Can Tile a Plane II
In April 2014, I found a tessellation of the plane which uses two kinds of octagons — both types equilateral, but only one type regular. Now, I have found two more ways to tessellate a plane with octagons, and these … Continue reading

Octagons Can Tile a Plane
This tessellation is made entirely of octagons. Half of them are regular, while the other half are equilateral and tetraconcave.
