Chapter 5 Symmetry in SnowflakesINTRODUCTIONThere are two different types of symmetry, line symmetry and rotational symmetry. In this task you will explore both kinds of symmetry. Not only will you see the applications in geometric figures, but you will learn to recognize symmetry in nature. You will apply what you have learned about symmetry to create a symmetrical snowflake.
THE TASKSymmi Tree is creating snowflakes, but is not sure that they are symmetrical. She has hired you to explore symmetry and help write instructions to create a perfectly symmetrical snowflake to share with others.
