As an middle school art teacher, I really like all your examples for Symmetry. Good job creating this presentation . I would love to use this in my classroom.

Symmetry in Nature
• Divide the leaf in half, you
will find that one half has
the same shape as the
other half.
• The snowflake will divide
into six half.
• The butterfly will be
divided by one line of
symmetry.
• Therefore line symmetry
divides an object into
equal parts.
4.
Symmetry in Architecture
• Symmetry finds its ways
into architecture at every
scale for examples:-
- from the overall external
views.
- through the layout of the
individual floor plans.
- down to the design of
individual building
elements such as
intricately caved doors,
stained glass windows.
5.
Symmetry in Art
• The concept of
symmetry is applied
to the design of
objects of all shapes
and sizes.
• Some examples
include beadwork,
furniture, masks,
musical instruments,
and many other
endeavors.
6.
Symmetry in Religious Symbols
• Symmetries are often
an integral part of the
symbols of world
religions.
• Some examples are
Judaism's Star of
David, Christianity's
cross, Sikhism's
khanda.
7.
Symmetry in Music
• Symmetry has been
used as a formal
constraint by many
composers, such as
the arch (swell).
• Symmetry concepts
of permutation and
invariance were used
in classical music.
8.
Rotational Symmetry
An object with rotational symmetry is an
object that looks the same after a certain
amount of rotation.
Order 3 Order 6
9.
All objects either have one or more
than one rotational symmetry for eg:-
Order 1 Order 5
