**In your own words explain what rotational symmetry is.**

b.

Line symmetry, also known as reflection symmetry is where an image is symmetrical to the other side. The reflection does not have a certain direction, it can go, up, down, side ways, or even diagonally. Rotation symmetry is a little bit different the turning point is always from the centre, it doesn't have to be identical to any other side. It has to be changed by a rotation to be the same as the starting point.

You place a pin in the shapes central point and rotate it until it can fit back to the starting point perfectly without turning the full rotation. If it can not fit back perfectly on one of the rotations, it does not have rotational symmetry.

**How is rotational symmetry different from line symmetry?**Line symmetry, also known as reflection symmetry is where an image is symmetrical to the other side.

**What do you do to check if a shape has rotational symmetry?**

You place a pin in the shapes central point and rotate it until it can fit back to the starting point perfectly without turning the full rotation. If it can not fit back perfectly on one of the rotations, it does not have rotational symmetry.
