Exploring rotational symmetry of regular polygons - Lesson+Exploration+Practice
- Simona Riva
How many times has your polygon overlapped the original one, after a full rotation of 360°? Can you relate the number of sides of the polygon and its order of rotational symmetry?
Food for thought...
Now imagine rotating a circle about its center, and consider the definition of rotational symmetry. What is the order of rotational symmetry for a circle?
