Level Three > Geometry and Measurement

# AO1: Describe the transformations (reflection, rotation, translation, or enlargement) that have mapped one object onto another.

Children
Resource

This unit examines the use of reflective, rotational, and translational symmetry in the design of logos. Logos are designs associated with a particular trade name and usually involve symmetry of some kind. This is to make them aesthetically pleasing as well as functional.

Resource

## Keeping in Shape

This unit examines tessellations, that is, ways of covering the plane with copies of the same shape so that there are no gaps or overlaps. Students will investigate what properties tessellating shapes must have in order to cover the plane with no gaps and with no overlapping. The tessellations investigated involve both non-regular and regular polygons.
