Symmetry School - Learning Geometry the Fun Way

Description:- Symmetry School is an engaging and brain-twisting game app designed to support and encourage mathematical development in children. It provides an intuitive learning experience and allows pupil to engage with symmetry in a fun way to

promote problem-solving skills.

Pain Point/Need:-

  • Game Based Learning , Common Core Standards
  • Study Aids, Printable Materials
  • Exercises & Worksheets

Platform:- iOS

Usability:- Symmetry School uses Geometry, the mathematics of shape and space, to introduce mathematical thinking in a fun and practical way to the learners. It is an interactive game for age group of 7 – 12+ years, and introduces reflective and rotational symmetry as an engaging mathematical puzzle. It encourages learners to use their intuition and imagination to explore symmetrical puzzles.

Using Symmetry School, the pupils will develop a foundation in spatial reasoning, problem solving and visualization, recognize simple spatial patterns and make predictions about them, learn to work systematically, develop fine motor skills, have fun and learn at the same time.

It is suitable for home or school use and has been developed in-line with international curriculum requirements for K-12 learning. It is available in English, French, German, Irish, Chinese and Spanish.

Walk-Through:- To register with Symmetry School, contact its team by filling up a form available at its website. The app has two game modes to choose from: Reflective Symmetry and Rotational Symmetry. Each mode also comes with three difficulty levels: Easy, Medium, and Hard.

In Reflective Symmetry’s Easy level, you will see a vertical line of symmetry dividing the 8×8 grids into two equal parts and 12 objects of the same shape, put randomly on the right side of the board. From a pool of exact copies of these objects you have to drag and arrange them on the left-hand side such that they reflect the objects on the right. The Medium level adds a second line of symmetry that divides the board into 4×4 quadrants with up to 12 objects in one of the quadrants, and your task is to put copies of these objects in all the other quadrants by applying mirroring principles on both lines of symmetry. Finally, the Hard level randomly places the initial shapes in up to three quadrants instead of one.

The second mode, Rotational Symmetry tries to teach how 90-degree clockwise rotation works. On the same 8×8 grid, you start with four objects of the same shape plotted in two adjacent quadrants. In the Medium level, objects are placed in one of the quadrants, and you’re asked to put where the rotated copies should be in all the other quadrants. In the Hard level, you have to find out how the rotation would affect an object’s orientation as well.

If you're a teacher and you'd like to use the app in your class, there is a Flash version of the app available on the developer’s website. Here you can download free activities and lesson plans (Common Core Standards) and also access the Symmetry School online (Whiteboard version). This Teacher's Whiteboard Version allows you to play both game modes with all three difficulty levels on a web browser.

Our Review:- The app is an excellent tool for learning geometrical concepts visually through trial and error. The feedback is almost immediate. The UI feels playful thanks to the use of bright colors and dynamic shapes. It promotes user engagement and interaction.

It’s really nice to see how the app uses hints instead of giving out the exact location of where a piece should be. Although it doesn't show any visible timer while you try to solve a board, once the board is completed, it will show you the number of moves and the total time you took to complete. You can then email the result if you want.

Symmetry School is an exquisite app that provides endless rounds of challenges to help kids perfect their concepts of reflection and rotational symmetry. Through the app, juniors can assess themselves and can take their time and progress whenever they’re ready. I recommend it to children as well as adults.
