    Symmetry Symmetry Presentation Transcript

    • SYMMETRY OF IMAGES Reflection, Rotational and Translational Symmetry
    • What is symmetry?
      • Symmetry is a characteristic of shapes or images in which it has identical sections or parts.
    • Three Types of Symmetry
      • Reflection
      • Rotational
      • Translational
    • Reflection Symmetry
      • Reflection symmetry is similar to an image formed in a mirror.
      • The axis of symmetry of a two-dimensional figure is a line such that, if the shape were to be folded in half over the axis, the two halves would be identical.
    • Can you draw the axis of symmetry?
    • Rotational Symmetry
      • Generally speaking, an object with rotational symmetry is an object that looks the same after a certain amount of rotation.
    •  
    •  
    • Translational Symmetry
      • This type of symmetry is formed when a basic shape is moved from point to the next.
