We will cover the why and how of folding rotated grids for tessellations. First, we'll discuss the theory and proof behind rotated grids and then we will fold my Half-Adjacent Squares tessellation on a rotated grid. At the end, we'll discuss how to apply this technique to tessellations provided by the students.

Supplies

• 2 sheets of the same size paper, preferably Tant and preferably larger than 15cm (6 inches) square. Kami is fine, but thicker paper would work better. This will work with any paper you can grid and reverse the creases.
• Bone folder
• Crease Pattern or folded sample of a tessellation where repeating elements are not aligned with the grid
