  1. 1. SYMMETRY OF IMAGES Reflection, Rotational and Translational Symmetry
  2. 2. What is symmetry? <ul><li>Symmetry is a characteristic of shapes or images in which it has identical sections or parts. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Three Types of Symmetry <ul><li>Reflection </li></ul><ul><li>Rotational </li></ul><ul><li>Translational </li></ul>
  4. 4. Reflection Symmetry <ul><li>Reflection symmetry is similar to an image formed in a mirror. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Can you draw the axis of symmetry?
  6. 6. Rotational Symmetry <ul><li>Generally speaking, an object with rotational symmetry is an object that looks the same after a certain amount of rotation. </li></ul>
  7. 9. Translational Symmetry <ul><li>This type of symmetry is formed when a basic shape is moved from point to the next. </li></ul>
