Quasicrystals and the Penrose Patterns: A Geometric Activity with a Scientific Application.
Clason, Robert; And Others
School Science and Mathematics, v93 n7 p344-50 Nov 1993
Penrose tile patterns are created using regular pentagon-based rhombi. Provides instructions for assembling Penrose patterns, plus activities for secondary school students and preservice elementary teachers. Compares the two-dimensional process of placing pattern blocks to form Penrose patterns to the symmetries of crystals formed in nature. (Contains 13 references.) (MDH)
