### 3.1 Symmetry in Polygons

What is symmetry?

There are two types we’re concerned with:

Rotational and Reflective

If a figure has ROTATIONAL symmetry, then you can rotate it about a center and it will match itself (don’t consider 0° or 360°)

If a figure has REFLECTIONAL symmetry, it will reflect across an axis.

What are polygons?

A plane figure formed by 3 or more segments

Has straight sides

Sides intersect at vertices

Only 2 sides intersect at any vertex

It is a closed figure

Names of polygons

• Equiangular – All angles are congruent

• Equilateral – All sides are congruent

• Regular (polygon) – All angles have the same measure AND all sides are congruent

• Reflectional Symmetry – A figure can be cut in half and reflected across an axis of symmetry.

• Rotational Symmetry – A figure has rotational symmetry iff it has at least one rotational image (not 0° or 360°) that coincides with the original image.

Central

angle

EQUILATERAL triangle has 3 congruent sides

ISOCELES triangle has at least 2 congruent sides

SCALENE triangle has 0 congruent sides

Center – in a regular polygon, this is the point equidistant from all vertices

Central Angle – An angle whose vertex is the center of the polygon

A little more vocab

• 3.1 Activities 1- 2 (hand out)

• Turn it in with your homework

What you should have learned about Reflectional symmetry in regular polygons

• When the number of sides is even, the axis of symmetry goes through 2 vertices

• When the number of sides is odd, the axis of symmetry goes through one vertex and is a perpendicular bisector on the opposite side

• To find the measure of the central angle, theta, θ, of a regular polygon, divide 360° by the number of sides. 360/n = theta

• To find the measure of theta in other shapes, ask: “when I rotate the shape, how many times does it land on top of the original?”

• Something with 180° symmetry would have 2-fold rotational symmetry

• Something with 90 degree rotational symmetry would be 4-fold
