A geometric pattern is a pattern consisting of lines and geometric figures, such as triangles, circles and squares, that are arranged in a repeated fashion. Geometric patterns are found in many places, including art and architecture, and they tend to be symmetrical.
The term "geometric shape" refers to any shape that remains virtually unchanged if it is moved around, flipped or reflected off of a surface. When manipulated, a geometric shape does not create a new shape; it remains intact. Examples include the circle, square, triangle, rectangle, hexagon and octa
Some of the most common geometric shapes are the triangle, the square, the pentagon, the octagon and the circle. All of these shapes, except the circle, are polygons, meaning they have a discrete number of sides and angles.
Printable star patterns are patterns of stars that can be printed from the Internet. The patterns can be used for sewing or crafts. Some star patterns can also be printed out to color or use as a stencil.
Make printable heart patterns by drawing the images in a graphic design program such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator or GIMP and printing the image or by using shape tools in a word processing program. Alternately, scan an existing heart pattern to modify it, and print it as a pattern.
Many websites provide free geometric shapes to print, including Fun-Stuff-to-Do.com, EnchantedLearning.com, and MathWorksheets4Kids.com. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes are available for printing on each of these websites.
A printable foot pattern can be one of two things: a printable pattern of a foot for fun activities, or a printable foot measure to determine shoe size for children. The most-common foot pattern is used by teachers as a teaching, training or activity tool.
Create printable shapes to cut out by using a shape drawing tool in a program such as Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Word or Microsoft Paint and printing the image. Alternately, use sites such as NCTM.org or DrawIsland.com to make shapes with the Web drawing tool and then save the image.
A geometric pattern refers to a sequence of numbers created by multiplying a specific value or number by the value of its previous one. As long as there are more than two numbers in the pattern, multiplication can be used to continue the pattern or find any missing numbers.
Geometric shapes found in nature include pentagons, hexagons, spirals, waves and lines. These shapes are fascinating examples of mathematical laws being manifested by natural or biological means.
