Singling out Symmetry

Published on May 5th, 2013 | by rm_shannon


Flower Symmetry

I’m a Primary teacher, who really enjoys Maths and Science. I used this photo (with other flower photos but not as symmetrical as this one, which is almost exactly so, though the veins in the petals come close) as a great starting point to introduce symmetry . Each student gets a photo printed so they can check the symmetry close up in an Australian Curriculum integrated unit called “Plants in Action”. I use it (and other photos) for both Science and Maths. Because of copyright, I need to take my own photos. Taken with my CanonPowershot D10.
