Angles and Symmetry

Apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations
• predict and describe the results of sliding, flipping, and turning two-dimensional shapes;
• describe a motion or a series of motions that will show that two shapes are congruent;
• identify and describe line and rotational symmetry in two- and three-dimensional shapes and designs.

Step 1

View the Symmetry animation. It is a great visual introduction.

Step 2

Visit these Websites and complete the activities.


Drag the line to the shapes to show the lines of symmetry.
