The stained glass quadrilateral project

IMG_20140527_115328My Math 9 class is studying quadrilaterals, and I wanted them to investigate how quadrilaterals could tile and create other shapes, so I found a project for creating stained-glass window designs from tiled quadrilaterals.

Stained Glass assignment

To the left and below are some examples of student work. Some of the best pieces used quadrilaterals to set a scene or tell a story. As well as making the stained glass the students had to write up how they used quadrilaterals in the piece.
