"Children are generally very interested in patterns and suggestions are given in the teachers' notes on how to approach the subject. Part of the pleasure in these designs is an appreciation of the power of mathematical thought to explain why certain shapes fit together and why others do not. There is also considerable satisfaction in the discovery that the most pleasing and natural way to colour them is intimately related to the underlying geometry."
