Short description
Simmetrix is a mathematics/geometry game that helps students to form symmetrical figures on a board with a point of symmetry or symmetry lines.
Target audience
Grades: 6-8
Topics covered
Symmetry about a point, symmetry about an axis
Game description
Players have to build symmetry using game pieces of different shapes. There are three different variations of the game:
1) players build symmetry about any axis on the board;
2) players build symmetry about any point on the board;
3) players build symmetry both about an axis and a point.
The first player who makes at least 4 cell figure, which is symmetric about the axis or a point, wins.
Outcomes
Deepened symmetry understanding
Increased motivation to study symmetry
Skills learned
Strategic thinking
Duration: 15-20 minutes
Number of players: 2-8
Application possibilities
To introduce the subject before teaching symmetry
For review, after teaching symmetry
