# Translational Symmetry

Here a particular pattern or design is continued throughout. The pattern changes its place without rotation or reflection. The exact image is found without changing its orientation.

Translational Symmetry

Look at the following figures:

Here a particular pattern or design is continued throughout. The pattern changes its place without rotation or reflection. The exact image is found without changing its orientation.

Thus, translation symmetry occurs when a pattern slides to a new position. The sliding movement involves neither rotation nor reflection.

Example 14

Which pattern is translated in the given kolams?

Solution

Example 15

Using the given pattern, colour and complete the boxes in such a way that it posseses translation symmetry.

Solution

Example 16
