|Welcome to Intriguing Tessellations,|
I have long had a love of nature, drawing, the
patterns found in nature and their mathematical relationships. It was 1975 when I first entered the world of tessellations. Reading an article by Martin Gardner in my son's Scientific
American sparked an interest in tessellations which continues to this day. It posed
the question, were there any new pentagon types that would tile a plane? I found it an
intriguing question. I've always enjoyed puzzles and thought maybe there were
more types yet to be found. I started out by developing my own notation so that I could
systematically approach the problem. Eventually I was rewarded in my search with finding
four new types of Pentagons. I am still intrigued by the beautiful patterns of
tessellations and it is my desire to share with others who are also intrigued by
tessellations. In the connecting pages you will find some of my own work and also links to
other pages that deal with tessellation. I hope you enjoy them.
Marjorie Celebrated her 90th birthday this year and lives with her daughter in California. She is no longer able to respond to questions about her tessellations. We hope you enjoy this website featuring her work.
