What is Symmetry ? :

An image has Rotational Symmetry if there is a center point around which the object is turned a certain number of degrees and the object still looks the same. an equilateral triangle has 3 internal angles,3 lines of symmetry & a rotational symmetry at order 3. a square has 4 internal angles, 4 lines of symmetry & a rotational symmetry at order 4. a regular pentagon has 5 internal angles,5 lines of symmetry & a rotational symmetry at order 5. a regular hexagon has 6 internal angles,6 lines of symmetry & a rotational symmetry at order 6. a regular octagon has 8 internal angles,8 lines of symmetry & a rotational symmetry at order 8. A shape has line symmetry when one half of it is the mirror image of the other half. What is Symmetry ?

Slide 5:

There are some examples of shapes that are tricky when considering symmetry. A typical parallelogram actually cannot be folded in half even though it appears to have two 'equal halves'. We can see both kinds of symmetry around us; rotational as well as line symmetry.
Lets see some of the interesting topics related to symmetry. Common Errors

This flower has 1 line of symmetry and a rotational symmetry of Order 5 as it matches itself 5 times. Nature & Line Symmetry.

Road Signs & Symmetry. :

Order 4+4 lines of symmetry Order 3+0 line of symmetry. Order 2+0 line of symmetry. Order 3+0 lines of symmetry. Order 2+1 line of symmetry. Order 1+1 line of symmetry. Road Signs & Symmetry.

Monuments & Symmetry. :

Monuments & Symmetry. Symmetry exists in architecture all around the world. One of the best known examples of this is the Taj Mahal. If an object is reflected in water many people believethe image has line symmetry. But is it really a 'mirror image'? Is it really symmetrical? What are your thoughts?
The image can be rotational symmetry.

Flags & Line Symmetry. :

Indonesia Japan Finland Micronesia Aboriginal Flag of Australia United Nations British Canada Flags & Line Symmetry.

The Memorah is used during the Jewish feast of Chanukah. The Dharma Wheel is a Buddhist symbol. Muslim buildings often have symmetry. The Jewish Star of David. The Christian Cross L.S-1 R.S-0 L.S-4 R.S-0 L.S-1 R.S-8 L.S-6 R.S-6 L.S-1 R.S-0 Religious Symbols & Symmetry. L.S-Line of Symmetry

Objects & Rotational Symmetry. :

Objects & Rotational Symmetry. Order 5 Often the picture cards in a playing deck have rotational symmetry. Since all the toppings are placed so evenly, this pizzahas rotational symmetry of Order 6. Order 7 Order 2
