# Symmetry Worksheets

What is Symmetry? Like many other definitions that are present in math, here is another one! Do you know what symmetry means? That is quite alright, we will tell you! Symmetry is present in many areas of math. It is originated from a Greek word that means "to measure together." Symmetry is most commonly applied when we are studying geometry. Now, let us take a look at what it is! In simple words, the property of an object to be similar when it is divided into two is known as symmetry. When one shape becomes exactly like the other, when changed in some way, slid, turned or flipped, the property is known as symmetry. Objects can only be symmetrical if the object when they have the same shape and size. For example, if you were to divide your face in half, the two halves would be perfectly symmetrical. However, not all objects have symmetry. When an object is not symmetrical, it is known as asymmetric.

• ### Basic Lesson

Guides students through the use of visuals to allow students to complete the symmetrical pattern. Complete the shape by coloring in the squares to give it symmetry across the dotted line.

• ### Intermediate Lesson

The symmetry patterns are larger and spread over more space than the basic lesson.

• ### Independent Practice 1

A really great activity for allowing students to understand the concept of symmetry. Complete each shape by coloring in the squares or dots to give it symmetry across the dotted line.

• ### Independent Practice 2

Students are asked to mimic the symmetrical pattern. The answers can be found below.

• ### Homework Worksheet

Students are provided with 12 problems to achieve the concept of symmetry. An example is also provided.

• ### Skill Quiz

This tests the students ability to capture and use the essence of symmetry.

Answers for the homework and quiz.

• ### Answer Key Part 2

Answers for lessons and both practice sheets.

• ### Basic Lesson

Guides students through recognizing lines of symmetry. A line of symmetry is any line that can be drawn through a figure which divides it into equal halves. Does the figure have a line of symmetry?

• ### Intermediate Lesson

Students learn step by step how to find lines of symmetry. How many lines of symmetry does a rectangle have?

• ### Independent Practice 1

A really great activity for allowing students to understand the concepts of Symmetry. Does the figure have a line of symmetry?

• ### Independent Practice 2

Students look for lines of symmetry. The answers can be found below.

• ### Homework Worksheet

Students are provided with 12 problems to achieve the concepts of Recognizing Lines of Symmetry. An example is also provided.

• ### Skill Quiz

This tests the students ability to understand recognizing lines of symmetry.
