Rotational Symmetry An object is said to possess rotational symmetry when it looks exactly the same after a rotation. The degree of rotational symmetry that an object has is known as its order. The order of rotational symmetry that an object has is the number of times that it fits on to itself during a full rotation of 360 degrees. Rotation turns the object about a fixed point which is know as centre of rotation. PowerPoint XP or above is needed to view the rotations on this presentation. During rotation the angle at which the object attains its original shape is called angle of rotation.

Rotational Symmetry For shapes that have only “order 1” rotational symmetry a centre of rotation can be found anywhere within it. For shapes that have “order 2” rotational symmetry or higher, a single centre of rotation can be located. PowerPoint XP or above is needed to view the rotations on this presentation. Order 1 Order 2 Order 3 Order 4
