## Problems

### A Roll of Patterned Paper

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

A design is repeated endlessly along a line - rather like a stream of paper coming off a roll. Make a strip that matches itself after rotation, or after reflection

### One Reflection Implies Another

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

When a strip has vertical symmetry there always seems to be a second place where a mirror line could go. Perhaps you can find a design that has only one mirror line across it. Or, if you thought that. . . .

### Rotations Are Not Single Round Here

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

I noticed this about streamers that have rotation symmetry : if there was one centre of rotation there always seems to be a second centre that also worked. Can you find a design that has only. . . .

### Spokes

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Draw three equal line segments in a unit circle to divide the circle into four parts of equal area.

### Footprints

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Make a footprint pattern using only reflections.

### Gold Yet Again

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:
