Rotational Symmetry Artwork on Display

We’ve combined math and art in a neat way–Rotational Symmetry Art!

Students had to create a design and trace this design 8 times which created a repeating pattern in a circle. We had been studying rotational symmetry when we began the art lesson and fused the two subjects together to create what you see below. They turned out beautifully! The amount of detail you can see is outstanding. It’s not easy to make each 1/8th segment identical to the others.

Have you ever done art like this before? If you missed our post about what rotational symmetry is, click here!

The following two tabs change content below.
