### math unit 6 symmetry

Question | Answer |
---|---|

Asymmetrical | Describes any figure that cannot be divided into two parts that are mirror images of each other. In other words, asymmetrical means "not symmetrical." |

Axis of Symmetry | |

Line of Symmetry | |

Line of Symmetry | A line that divides a figure into two parts, each of which is a mirror image of the other. |

Reflectional Symmetry | A figure has reflectional symmetry if, after reflecting the figure over a line, the figure lines back up with itself |

Rotation | A transformation that turns a figure about a fixed point at a given angle and a given direction. |

Rotational Symmetry | A figure has rotational symmetry if, after rotating it by an angle of 180 degrees or less about its center, the figure lines back up with itself. |

Symmetry | The property of a figure or expression that allows for parts of it to be interchanged without forcing a change in the whole |

Axis of Symmetry | A line that a figure can be folded over so that one-half of the figure matches the other half perfectly; a line about which a figure is symmetrical. |

Line Symmetry | Figures that match exactly when folded in half have line symmetry. |
