World Tessellation Day 2019

4th annual World Tessellation Day. Begun in 2016 by Emily Grosvenor for M. C. Escher's birthday. (More of that story and Emily's book.) Don't think I'll get a chance to make a new tessellation for today, but here are some of my favorites from the past year. (Mine followed by the real treats from others.)

In Isometric

Not nearly everything you could see. Do you have a favorite - list it in the comments, please! If you have ideas for a GeoGebra applet, I'd love to hear it. 

To explore further, there's a tessellation page on this blog, or a tag on my tumblr, or GeoGebra books for (mostly) tile altering tessellations and Islamic Geometric Patterns.

And happy WTD. Go cover something with a finite set of shapes and no gaps or overlaps! Might need to work on a better slogan.
