Repeating Patterns

This interactive Flash applet gives students the opportunity to copy, create and extend repeating patterns utilizing two different triangles. Many patterns are possible since the angles in both are multiples of 30 degrees and the shorter sides are equal in length. The Teachers' Notes page includes suggestions for implementation, ideas for extension and support, and printable sheets (pdf).
