During the first Math Teachers’ Circle of the 20222023 academic year (at College of DuPage), we explored quilts and quilt patterns. We examined all the symmetries possible in a 4×4 quilt. In addition, we began to explore how many possible quilts could have such symmetries (hint: it’s A LOT!). Some participants used statistics to create random quilts and the question came up: if we continued to use random pattern generation, what is the probability of getting a quilt with SOME type of symmetry (versus no symmetry)?
