Tessellations

Tessellating a plane is to cover it with shapes leaving no gaps. The shapes may all be the same, or there may be several shapes. Each shape may be rotated, reflected or translated to fit somewhere else leaving no gaps.

The shapes tessellating the planes below are all identical, but have been rotated, translated or reflected to fill in the gaps.

The shapes tessellating the planes below are of two different types.
