Worksheet Overview

Watch this short video on rotational symmetry.  

It explains something called the order of rotational symmetry.



The order of symmetry is the number used to describe how many times a diagram will appear to be the same while rotating through 360°.

If the diagram matches up twice, it is Order 2.

If it matches the original shape three times, it is Order 3.

Order 2 = 180°

Order 4 = 90°

Order 8 = 45°



In the following diagram, what colour must go in square A for the shape to have Rotational Symmetry of Order 2.




A must be BLUE
