The Three Meanings of Similarity

We can say that two objects are similar if they look alike. In layman’s words, objects with the same shape, whether they have the same size or not are usually called similar. In mathematics, it is quite different. In this post, we are going to learn the three mathematical meanings of similarity. In mathematics, two objects […]

Understanding Point Symmetry

In the previous post, we have learned about line symmetry. In this post, we are going to learn about point symmetry, another type of symmetry. If a figure is rotated 180 degrees about a point and it coincides with its original position, then it is said that the figure has point symmetry. The point of rotation is called […]

Understanding Line Symmetry

Many people believe that symmetry is beauty. Nature is full of symmetric objects. There are many man-made structures that are also symmetric. In this post, we are going to discuss some of the basic mathematical properties of symmetric objects. We will limit our discussion to line symmetric objects. Line Symmetry A figure is line symmetrical […]
