1.   Which characteristic of a regular polygon is used to determine if it tessellates?
    A. The angle measure at each vertex is a factor of 360. B. The angle measure at each vertex is less than 180.
    C. The sum of the measures of the angles is a multiple of 360. D. The polygon has an even number of sides and angles.
    Hint

  2.   Which of the following angle measures represent the angles of a regular polygon that can be used to make a tessellation?
    A. 90° B. 150°
    C. 135° D. 144°
    Hint

  3.   What is the name of a polygon that has seven sides?
    A. octagon B. hexagon
    C. heptagon D. nonagon
    Hint

  4.   In the tessellation below, name the polygons and determine how many of each type are at each vertex.
    A. six triangles
    B. one hexagon and four triangles
    C. none of the other choices; different vertices have different polygons forming them
    D. two triangles and two hexagons
    Hint
