Fonts and Symmetry
Using fonts as a context, we will analyze symmetry of fi gures. Diff erent letters and numbers will be measured, and participants will describe items that possess vertical, horizontal, and rotational symmetry. Our discussion and activity will focus on the mathematics of fonts and the presence and absence of symmetry in their design.
