Symmetry of the human body Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man showing the proportions and symmetry of the human body
Types of symmetry depending on the number of sides or faces that are symmetrical Spiderwort with three- fold symmetry Starfish with five-fold symmetry
Snowflakes Six-fold symmetry • In the freezing temperature, water molecules in the atmosphere organize themselves around suspended dust particles to form snowflakes. • No two snowflakes are exactly alike, due to the effect of humility and temperature on the ice crystal as it forms. • Snowflakes are example of fractals . Fractals are objects whose smaller parts look similar to the bigger part ( when magnified its smaller parts look like tiny production of the entire snowflakes). • The repetition of shape at the miniscule level is called self-similarity .
Objects in nature which display self-similarity Ferns Mountain Lightning Root system of plant Veins and nerve system of the human body Clouds
