Note: This is a first foray for the #mathartchallenge into Islamic Geometry. I would be a fool to not take this opportunity to teach you about Samira Mian. Her online courses are fantastic, and her tutorials are great. So are is her instagram!

**The Challenge**: Construct an 8-pointed star, and possibly tile it?

*Materials needed:* Straight edge, writing utensils, paper, compass? (There are tutorials for both compass and no compasses below.)*Math concepts* *you could explore with this challenge: *angles, circles, geometric construction, Islamic geometry, symmetry, tessellations, vertices/intersections
