## Symmetry

****If a shape or image can fold onto itself then it has reflection symmetry.

1 axis of symmetry |
2 axes of symmetry |
3 axes of symmetry |
4 axes of symmetry |

## PRACTICE |

## ROTATIONAL Symmetry

**EXTENSION ONLY**

**A shape or image has rotational symmetry if it fits exactly onto itself as it is rotated.**
rotational symmetryof order 2 (half turn symmetry) |
rotational symmetryof order 3 |
rotational symmetryof order 4 (quarter turn symmetry) |
rotational symmetryof order 8 |

Describe the symmetry of each of the shapes below.**Examples**Describe the symmetry of each of the shapes below.
