Constructions

Construct an equilateral tringle and a hexagon using straight edge and compasses - see instructions here.

Having mastered the basic technique, now try to create a set of tessellating hexagons, keeping the compasses set at their original radius to find the centre of the new circles.

 

Having drawn the linked hexagons, now draw in the stars

Can you create a more complex interlocking pattern?
