Math Photo: Hexagonal Rabbits
The tilling station is one of my favorite exhibits at the Museum of Mathematics. These rabbit tiles create a hexagonal tiling of the plane. Pick any rabbit, and you’ll notice six rabbits all around it; this is exactly how hexagons fit together to tile the plane.
What I really like about this tiling is the the various levels of triangles that emerge. Triangles of rabbits, one of each color, mutually intersect at ears and paws. And I can’t help but seeing the monochromatic rabbit triangles!
