I've been creating several art lessons that integrate math. For this one, I wanted my students to create a design using rotational symmetry. First I cut a nine inch square and divided it by folding into eighths. I traced on each line forming the guide lines for the design.It's hard to see in the picture, but I drew small marks along each line one inch apart starting from the center. Below you will see two finished projects. I encouraged the students to begin their design in the center and rotate the square to make each section the same.
