Rotational Symmetry
• A figure has rotational symmetry if it can be rotated or turned less than 360º about its center so the figure looks exactly as it does in its original position.

Rotational Symmetry
• Simply means, if you turn a figure around before a complete turn (360º) and it looks exactly the same, then, it has rotational symmetry.

Summary

• When an image is turned less than 360º and it looks exactly the same as it was when it was in its original position, there is rotational symmetry.
• We learned two kinds of symmetry: line symmetry and rotational symmetry.

Exit Slip

• Explain rotational symmetry. If you wish, you can differentiate it with line symmetry.
• Your explanation has to be in complete sentences.
• This is a one-point extra credit.
