rotation must be less than 360 degrees. An example of this is a starfish. You can turn it and it will still have the same basic starfish shape, therefore depicting rotational symmetry. One last type of symmetry is called point symmetry. Point symmetry is actually rotational symmetry but only of 180 degrees. This means that an object or figure can be rotated 180 degrees and appear the same. An example of this is a football. This chapter had alot of information in it that was hard to understand, but with concentration and determination, it became easier. There are many laws that are important to these concepts and they must all be considered to be sure that you have reached teh correct answer. This report was a learning experience and helped me to understand the concepts of

transformations and symmetry.
