In this section, you will find a number of exercises designed to get you comfortable with KaleidoTile. Feel free to stop and experiment with the program at any time, or to leave this section when you feel confident.

Press the (2,3,3) button. Drag the base point to the lower right vertex dot.

• Make two sketches and include the name.
• Do the same with the base point at the lower left vertex dot.

Press the (2,3,5) button. Drag the base point to the lower right vertex dot.

• Make two sketches and include the name.
• Do the same with the base point at the lower left vertex dot.

Press the (2,3,6) button. Drag the base point to the lower right vertex dot. Move the object around.

• How would you describe the resulting figure?
• Is this 3-dimensional?
• Make a sketch of this figure.
• Move the basepoint to the lower left vertex dot and make a sketch of the result.

Press the (2,3,7) button. Drag the base point to the lower right vertex dot. Move the object around. Weird!

• How would you describe this object?
• Describe what happens to the shapes as you move the object.
• Make a sketch of this.
• Do the same with the basepoint at the lower left vertex dot.

Now using any button you like in the Symmetry Group window, place the basepoint at any dot in the Basepoint window that you haven't tried yet.

• Sketch the resulting figure and list the name given (if one is given).
• Do this for at least 3 more different figures.
• Can you find the shape of a soccer ball? Describe how to find it.
