# Describe translations, reflections and rotations of two-dimensional shapes. Identify line and rotational symmetries (ACMMG114)

**LO: To identify line and rotational symmetries.**

**Know:**

- the definition of symmetry

**Understand:**

- that objects can be rotated around the point to create symmetry

**Do:**

- I can identify line and rotational symmetries.

**Line Symmetry**

**Line Symmetry**

### A line of symmetry is a line which splits both sides of an object identically.

### They can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal.

**Rotational Symmetry**

**Rotational Symmetry**

### Rotational symmetry is when an object looks exactly the same after a rotation.

### The number of times the object looks identical to the original picture is termed order.
