Semi-regular tessellations combine two or more different regular polygons to fill the plane. Can you find all the semi-regular tessellations?
Interior angles can help us to work out which polygons will
tessellate. Can we use similar ideas to predict which polygons
combine to create semi-regular solids?
On a clock the three hands - the second, minute and hour hands -
are on the same axis. How often in a 24 hour day will the second
hand be parallel to either of the two other hands?
Is it true that any convex hexagon will tessellate if it has a pair
of opposite sides that are equal, and three adjacent angles that
add up to 360 degrees?
At the time of writing the hour and minute hands of my clock are at
right angles. How long will it be before they are at right angles
Where will the point stop after it has turned through 30 000
degrees? I took out my calculator and typed 30 000 ÷ 360. How
did this help?
