Reflection Symmetry
If we place a mirror on the line of symmetry we can see the
complete image. So, we find that the mirror image or reflection of the image in
the mirror and the given figure are exactly symmetrical.
This type of symmetry is called reflection symmetry.
The mirror line is the line of symmetry between the two
figures. The mirror image of an object is the same but it appears in the opposite
direction.
We note that the shapes in the above pictures are same but
the other way round.

We will learn how to use nets to find the surface area of a solid? Let us take a box made of cardboard. If we cut open the box and flatten it out, the flat shape is called the net of the box. A net is a twodimensional shape that can be folded to make a threedimensional

The number of times a figure fits into itself in one complete rotation is called the order of rotational symmetry. If A° is the smallest angle by which a figure is rotated so that rotated from fits onto the original form, then the order of rotational symmetry is given

We know that any object or shape which can be cut in two equal halves in such a way that both the parts are exactly the same is called symmetrical and the line which divides the shape in two equal halves is called the line of symmetry. A shape can have many lines of symmetry

The shapes and objects that look the same after a certain amount of rotation are said to have rotational symmetry. Some shapes look the same after half a turn. If we turn English alphabet S around a centre point by 180° we get the alphabet S in the same position.
