Resources - Symmetry


Symmetry is an interactive teaching program (ITP) which displays a grid, which has a 'mirror' in the middle. The mirror can be set to a horizontal, vertical or diagonal orientation and then adjusted by dragging it around a central point. Squares on the grid can be highlighted in yellow and the shape created can be moved to a new position on the grid. The reflection of these highlighted squares can be shown in blue, or hidden, with the mirror fixed or while the mirror is being rotated.
