Tiling at IKEA

I got a bit bored on a recent trip to IKEA, so I started looking for mathematical things to play around with.  I quickly found this octagon.

There were plenty available, so I started tiling the plane.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to finish.

    Ha! Idea for Ikea is a good typo. Thanks for pointing it out.

    IKEA kicked me out for stealing their paper rulers. We measure circles in my class to try to find pi.

    I took a couple of those measuring tapes, too. That’s funny that they actually threw you out!
