Mathematics in Everyday Life

It is sometimes difficult for students to appreciate the importance of Mathematics. They often find the subject boring and hard to understand. With this project we will hopefully help our students realise that Mathematics is not just a subject on their time-table but a tool they use in their everyday life!

Symmetry Around US

*in Nature
*in Clothing
*in Architecture
*in Art

Symmetry is a type of visual balance where the overall composition is arranged to look like it is the same on both sides of the center of the design.


If you folded this snowflake in half, both sides would match up perfectly.


In other words, symmetry is a design which could be folded in half, and as the design folds, each part of the design would match up with the half on the opposite side of the center.
