A simple animation from Subtangent presents examples of rotational symmetry in nature and demonstrates how to establish, using a centre of rotation, the order of rotational symmetry.
Students are given five shapes and invited to investigate their symmetry.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
