Allapattah Flats students use tessellations to combine math and art

Eighth grade students in Linda Chinn’s math classes at Allapattah Flats K8 are studying polygons and invited reading coach Linda Schmeer to read “The Greedy Triangle.” Students also looked at some famous art work based on tessellations to gain background. Students then worked with tesseltiles to create their own unique tessellations. Frank Andrade, left, and Corey Lewis are shown with some of the tessellations students used to create their pieces of art.
