  1. Hello,
    Thank you for writing this post.
    I really enjoyed reading the post and watching the videos.
    I think 'tessellation' is a fun and a uncomplicated subject in maths.
    I have learned tessellation before and except making the shapes for the tessellation, you can learn it really fast.
