  • Students analyze shapes through symmetry and congruence.

    • Verify symmetry of two shapes by reflecting or rotating one shape onto another.

    • Describe the symmetry between two shapes as reflection symmetry or rotation symmetry.

    • Visualize and describe a combination of two transformations that relate symmetrical shapes.

    • Describe the symmetry modelled in a tessellation.

    • Investigate tessellations found in objects, art, or architecture.
