Regular tessellations can be made using triangles, squares, and hexagons.

Some facts on tessellations are that there are different types of tessellations such as regular and semi-regular. In tessellations, each vertex will have a sum of 360ΓΒΊ which is what all of the angles should come out to.

Math is related to math because math(1) is technically math(2) itself, because there is really no description how math(1) is the same as math(2). There is only one math, except for types of math, like algebra.

A tessellation occurs and relates to math with shapes that recur. Tessellations are shapes that are repeated continuously and cover a certain part of a plane.

They could be recurrences. In geometry, they may be tessellations, although these need not repeat.

According to my math textbook tessellations are prominent in Islamic art, Italian mosaics, quilts and ceramics. A very famous tessellation artist is M.C.Escher he created many paints, drawing, and prints using tessellations of interlocking animals. His art reflects the mathematics that underlies all things. Tessellations are frequently used in graphics arts and interior decorating. Since the Koran forbids the use of images of people or animals, many Muslim buildings are decorated with tessellations.

They have to be copied exactly the same just like you would do for copying an angle or line or triangle or any other shape.

Geometry because without accurate math skills, there would be no way to create working tessellations. Escher often referred to himself as a mathematician instead of an artist.

Johannes Kepler discovered and studied tessellations.

Shapes that fit perfectly together are called a tessellation.
