Student Worksheet


If a figure's line of symmetry is vertical, the figure has vertical symmetry. The letter V has a vertical axis of symmetry. Likewise, if the line of symmetry is horizontal, the figure has a horizontal symmetry. The letter E has horizontal symmetry. Some figures, like the letter X, have both horizontal and vertical symmetry.
Look at this textile design from the Latin American Wing at the San Antonio Museum of Art.

Does it have symmetry? If so, what kind?
