## Content

### ACTIVITY: To use the vocabulary and properties of rotations to describe the relationships between 2-D shapes [LO 3.4]

1. Trace the following figures and cut them out neatly.

1.

2.

1.1 Determine how many times the design will fit into its outlines:

Figure 1: ____________________________________________________________

Figure 2: ____________________________________________________________

2. Determine whether the following figures have rotational symmetry:

2.1

________________________________

2.2

_______________________________

2.3

_______________________________

3. Complete : A square has an order of symmetry of ______________________

A rectangle has an order of symmetry of______________________________

4. Does a triangle have rotational symmetry?_____________________________

## Assessment

Learning Outcome 3:The learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts.

Assessment Standard 3.4: We know this when the learner uses the vocabulary and properties of rotations, reflections and translations to describe the relationships between distinct two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects within patterns (including transformations and symmetry).
