Recognizing Symmetry Graphically, Algebraically, and Numerically About the X-axis and Y-axis

1. Recognizing Symmetry Graphically, Algebraically, and Numerically About the X-axis and Y-axis

When you fold a piece of paper exactly in half, you are creating symmetry. Symmetry is found in many areas of mathematics. In this lesson, learn to recognize symmetry graphically, algebraically, and numerically about the x- and y- axes.

Recognizing Symmetry Graphically, Algebraically & Numerically About the Origin

2. Recognizing Symmetry Graphically, Algebraically & Numerically About the Origin

If you look at flowers and fruits, you'll see that many of these items in nature are symmetrical. In this lesson, learn about symmetry about the origin of a graph. When you are finished, test your knowledge with a short quiz!

Identifying the Line of Symmetry: Definition & Examples

3. Identifying the Line of Symmetry: Definition & Examples

Symmetry can occur in many different ways in mathematics. In this lesson, learn how to identify unique forms of symmetry by finding the line of symmetry.

Even & Odd Functions: Definition & Examples

4. Even & Odd Functions: Definition & Examples

Even and odd functions are an aspect of line symmetry. You can use knowledge of even and odd functions to quickly identify equation symmetry. After this lesson, test your knowledge with a short quiz!

Odd Function: Definition & Examples

5. Odd Function: Definition & Examples

Odd functions have properties of symmetry that can be useful when graphing and analyzing the functions or when solving equations algebraically. Learn the properties of odd functions and how to recognize them graphically.

What is Rotational Symmetry? - Definition & Examples

6. What is Rotational Symmetry? - Definition & Examples

If you have ever tried to hang a picture and not been able to tell which end was up, then your picture might have had rotational symmetry. Rotational symmetry is the characteristic that makes an object look the same even after you've rotated it.
