Symmetry In Art-Art in Symmetry

Geometry Art - Walt: use the invariant properties of figures and objects under transformation (reflection-whakaata, rotation-hurihanga, translation-nekehanga, or enlargement).
We learned that the invariant properties included internal angles, area, basic shape. When a shape is rotated the lengths, area and angles within the shape do not change but the orientation/position of the shape does. When a shape is reflected the lengths, area and angles within the shape do not change but the orientation/position of the shape does. When a shape is translated lengths, area, angles and orientation/position do not change. When a shape is enlarged (or reduced) by a scale factor angles and orientation do not change but area and lengths do.

Ina titiro koe ki nga pikitia nei, he aha ou kitenga?
(What do you notice when you look at these pictures?)
  



Ka kite tatou i etehi mea pangarau i roto i nga pikitia? (Can we recognise any mathematics ideas relating to symmetry in the pictures?)

The Season Pond

Sunset painting the wide clear sky with bright splashes of colour.
Underneath the pale light a small pond sits holding all the seasons in its grasp.

The frosty breath of white winter
The colourful swirl of the lively autumn
The watery marsh of rainy spring
And the beautiful growth of summer each defending their part of the pond.

Winter, clear sparkling ice like thick slippery glass and grass covered in a
Blanket of spotless snow as cold crisp and fresh as the air around it.

Autumn, a blend of colours blood red vibrant orange muddy brown and flashy
Yellow dancing together in the whirling wild winds.

Spring, water creeping slowly up the side of the muddy bank, tickling the side
Of the flowers side by side like friends linking arms in a chain.

Summer, flourishing with life insects buzzing over the rippling water filled
With fisf fast and happy, lilly-pads sitting peacefully on the surface of the
Glinting water.

Lively animals and healthy plants swarming the grassy bank.  All sides
Battling for their own side.
