Rotational Symmetry

An image has Rotational Symmetry if there is a point in the image that the image can be turned around a certain number of degrees and still look the same.

On this page you will investigate rotational symmetry. As you investigate, be sure to write down your observations.

Click on the image below to investigate rotational symmetry.

After you are done, close the sketch without saving your changes!

When will reflectional symmetry and rotational symmetry be confused? Can you find a drawing that has both reflectional and rotational symmetry?
