1. Rotational Symmetry

2. Rotational Symmetry • If, when you rotate a shape, it looks exactly the same as it did in its original position, then we say that the shape has got rotational symmetry. • This square has got rotational symmetry. • It looks exactly the same four times in a full turn. • It has got rotational symmetry order 4.

3. Rotational Symmetry • Does this rectangle have rotational symmetry? No, it doesn’t fit No, it doesn’t fit Yes, it fits! Yes, it fits! Click to rotate the rectangle. • It looks exactly the same twice in a full turn. • It has got rotational symmetry order 2.

15. Pentominoes A pentomino is made out of five squares that are connected along at least one edge. Here is an example of a pentomino. These are NOT pentominoes. How many different pentominoes can you find? Click here to return to line symmetry.

16. 7-Pin Polygons Here is an arrangement of 7 pins. A 7-pin polygon is a closed shape with straight sides with corners on the pins. Here are some examples of 7-pin polygons. How many different 7-pin polygons can you find? Click here to return to line symmetry.
