## Texas Go Math Grade 4 Lesson 13.5 Answer Key Line Symmetry

**Essential Question**

How can you check if a figure has line symmetry?

Answer:

**Unlock the Problem**

One type of symmetry found in geometric figures is line symmetry. This sign is in the hills above Hollywood, California. D0 the letters in the Hollywood sign show line symmetry?

A figure has line symmetry fit can he folded about a line so that its two parts match exactly.

A fold line, or a line of symmetry, divides a figure into two parts that are the same size and shape.

**Activity Explore line symmetry.**

Materials

- pattern blocks
- scissors
- tracing paper

**Math Idea**

**(A) Does the letter W have line symmetry?**

STEP 1 Use pattern blocks to make the letter W.

Answer:

STEP 2 Trace the letter

Answer:

STEP 3 Cut out the tracing.

Answer:

STEP 4 Fold the tracing over a vertical line.

Answer:

So, the letter W ____________ line symmetry.

Answer:

one line of symmetry

Explanation:

As we fold the paper the two parts of the folded W match exactly. Hence fold line is a line of symmetry. Therefore W has one line of symmetry.

Mathematical Processes

Why is it important to use a fold line to check if a figure has line symmetry?

Answer:

A line that cuts a shape exactly in half. That means if you were to fold the shape along the line, both the halves would match exactly. Then we can tell that the fold line is a line of symmetry.

**(B) Does the letter L have line symmetry?**

STEP 1

Use pattern blocks or grid paper to make the letter L.

Answer:

STEP 2

Trace the letter.

Answer:

STEP 3

Cut out the tracing.

Answer:

STEP 4

Fold the tracing over a vertical line.

Answer:

STEP 5

Then open it and fold it horizontally.

Answer:

STEP 6

Then open it and fold it diagonally.

Answer:

So, the letter L _____________ line symmetry.

Answer:

The letter L has no line of symmetry.

Explanation:

The given letter L has no line of symmetry though it was folded horizontally or vertically.

Mathematical Processes

Explain how you can use paper folding to check if a figure has line symmetry.

Answer:

To check the line of symmetry, we have to fold the paper through the line. If the shapes on both sides of the line get matched, then the line through which the paper is folded can be considered as a line of symmetry.

**Share and Show**

**Tell whether the parts on each side of the line match.**

**Is the line a line of symmetry? Write yes or no.**

Question 1.

Answer:

Yes

Explanation:

We can imagine the above shape given as a paper. If we fold the paper through the dotted line, transparently the shapes on both sides of the line get matched. Hence the dotted line is a line of symmetry.

Question 2.

Answer:

Yes

Explanation:

We can imagine the above shape given as a paper. If we fold the paper through the dotted line, transparently the shapes on both sides of the line get matched. So, the dotted line is a line of symmetry.

Question 3.

Answer:

Yes

Explanation:

The given figure has a line of symmetry.

Question 4.

Answer:

No

Explanation:

We can imagine the above shape given as a paper. If we fold the paper through the dotted line, transparently the shapes on both sides of the line do not get matched. So, the given figure has no line of symmetry.
