This poster is to present a multi-touch enhanced tessellation design system, which is part of a three-year long research project. A modified waterfall model was utilized to develop the system, which includes requirement, analysis, design, implementation and evaluation phases. It is a Windows application, coded in C# (C sharp) and XAML using Visual Studio. During the development processes, eight elementary school students participated voluntarily in a series of testing and debugging. In addition, a class of students were invited to participate in an experimental activity of creating tessellations and to assess the usability of the system. The testing, debugging and experiment showed that (1) the tessellation system and its user interface and functions are acceptable, and (2) the system has the potential for school use in tessellation related lessons.
