Kurschak's General Tile 2
- John Golden
Josef Kurschak constructed a beautiful tile that constructs a dodecagon that makes several interesting observations possible. (See this sketch for that construction: http://www.geogebratube.org/material/show/id/49694) In that sketch he inscribes four equilateral triangles in a tile. Well one of the things mathematicians love to ask is "What If?" What if it they weren't inscribed in a square? This sketch lets you change the number of sides.
