Crossover Symmetry Exercise #1: Cross-Over Symmetry

The first exercise we will discuss is cross-over symmetry. Cross-over symmetry is one of the most common types of symmetries used in nature. When two objects are placed close together they form a triangle or other shape. If you look at the picture above, you can see that the object A is closer to B than it is to C. This type of symmetry is called “symmetric” because it’s not possible for either side to be any closer than the other.

In addition, if we place another object in between them, then they would still form a triangle or similar shape. So this type of symmetry is called “asymmetrical”. You may have noticed that all these shapes are symmetrical with respect to each other. They’re just arranged differently.

Now let’s take a look at some examples of different kinds of triangles and other shapes:

Cross-over Symmetry Exercise #2: Symmetric Triangle Example 1

Symmetric triangle example 1 is a simple symmetrical triangle. There are three sides which make up the whole triangle. These three sides are known as the “crown” of the triangle. The crown of the triangle is the shortest possible length of each side, without making it fall apart. The crown is also very interesting because it is one of the most important measurements in all of geometry.

You can find out more about the crown here.

Cross-over Symmetry Exercise #3: Asymmetric Triangle Example 2

Asymmetric triangle example 2 looks very similar to an example of a cross-over symmetry shape.
