Hex Patterns – Rotational Symmetry

Print Friendly

You may have seen our hex patterns up at our windows.  In Mathematics, hex means six.  That’s why a hexagon has six sides.  We cut a circle into six equal parts and decorated them exactly the same.  Then we turned the parts and returned them to a circle shape – some rotational symmetry.  We think they look great!

What did you like best about doing the hex patterns?  Did you use language like ‘slide’ and ‘turn’?
