SYMMETRY OF MATTER
SCIENCES – SYMMETRY OF MATTER
Objective: Students learn to recognize symmetry.
View Thru Geometric Solids
Getting into Solids (Pyramids) optional
There are many web sites with animations of different forms. They might help you explain symmetry to your students. If you purchase a set, you might want to use them for the questions on overall symmetry and rotational symmetry.
1. a. bilateral, reflective; b. 4 fold; bilateral; c. cubic, 8 fold; d. radial, infinite; e. bilateral, reflective; f. hexagonal, reflective g. pentagon, 5 fold; h. bilateral, reflective
2. it is not reflective, house should be upside down and inverted
3. a,b bilateral, cubic; c,d. bilateral, 4 fold; e. pentagonal, 5 fold; f.g bilateral, 3 fold; h. cubic, 8 fold; i bilateral, 3 fold; j,k, l, n bilateral, infinite; m radial, infiinite
