# Tessellation

## Repeated patterns – no gaps

A shape is said to be tessellated if an infinite number of that shape can be put together with no gaps.

The first time I failed my driving **test** was when **I** turned up **late** (tessellation). I’ve **repeatedly** failed my test **hundreds** of **times** (repeatedly).

**Example 1**

**Example 2**

A equilateral triangle can form a tessellation.

**Example 3**

A hexagon can form a tessellation.

**Example 4**

A famous artist who drew tessellations was M.C. Escher

This is M.C. Eschers drawing of Geckos.
