Transformations - symmetry

Had fun with a great tool today - Symmetry Artist from Maths Fun - quick and easy to create pictures with vertical or horizontal symmetry - or symmetrical around the diagonal. Also rotational symmetry order 2 to 9 can be created.

Can you guess we like butterflies!!!! Or maybe they are just something people think about when they think of symmetry?

Next step is to use 'Scratch' with computer programming and algebra to create symmetrical animations!
