Hourigan, Mairead; Leavy, Aisling
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v22 n2 p8-13 2017
Working within the context of a contest to find the most beautiful tourist attraction in the world, Year 5 students investigate the most symmetric building from a short-list of three iconic buildings. This involves investigating both line and rotational symmetry in order to make an informed decision about the symmetrical nature of each building.
