Here is a worksheet with ten very convincing frieze groups. You can be sure there are only seven possible frieze patterns (because there are only seven on the palette, and as we said, this is quality software.)

Q6: How was each pattern on the sheet generated?
What patterns are actually the same mathematically?
That is, what patterns can be broken in to motifs and generators in the same way? ( Caution: heads will get chopped! Use kali to try out ideas!)
