An irregular tessellation is a tesselation made of irregular shapes. Escher is famous for drawing these with animals in them.

Tessellation is using multiple copies of one - or a few - basic shapes to cover a plane space without gaps or overlaps.

Certain polygons, yes. Squares, Triangles and Hexagons are all shapes which, in their regular form, can tessellate. Other polygons cannot.

TESSELATION

What is a tesselation? The answer is very basic. Tesselations are a shape, whether regular or unregular, placed in a repeated fashion. For example, hexagons, a regular shape, is placed in a tesselation, on a soccer ball. The properties of a tesselation, is that the same as, what is a tesselation? I guess the properties of a tesselation are just shapes or objects fitting into each other to form a tesselation. Hope it helped! By audreeso

tesselation

An irregular tessellation is a tesselation made of irregular shapes. Escher is famous for drawing these with animals in them.

It comprises two (or more) shapes which are replicated so that they cover a plane without overlap or gaps.

This is a pattern made up of identical shapes, they must fit together without any gaps and the shapes must not overlap. Multiple regular shapes are squares, triangles, hexagons and dodecagons

I do not know the answer. However, I think that for a shape to be able to be a tesselation, that the exterior angle of it must be a factor of 360. The exterior angle of a 9-gon is 40 degrees, and since 40 x 9 is 360, then yes, the 9-gon will work in a tesselation (there will be four of them that share one vertex). In fact, I have come to this solution (it's probably been discovered before): All regular poylygons can be formed into a tesselation. The number of individual shapes in the tesselation that share each vertex will be equal to the number of sides on each polygon.

Yes it is.
