We’ve recently learned about rotational symmetry and how it’s different from line symmetry.
A shape has rotational symmetry when you turn it and the shape fits exactly onto itself. The number of positions in which the object looks exactly the same is called the order of the symmetry. If a shape only matches itself once as we go around (ie it matches itself after one full rotation) there is really no rotational symmetry at all.
