I worry a bit about the wooden panel showing diagonal symmetry. It may be a square, but it looks like a rectangle. If so, it doesn't have a line of symmetry when folded over. Otherwise I love it and will use it in my next lesson. Thanks for making it free!

Thanks for all your work on this. It's a great intro to symmetry and I am looking forward to using it. My one suggestion is that I find that there is a lot of animation. Perhaps some of the words coming in can just "appear" as oppose to being "typed in". If kids aren't exposed to many PPT presentations the excellent content may get lost as they focus on the animations.

Hi Susan
I love your symmetry ppt but when I download it it opens in slide show mode and I am unable to save it. Any suggestions? Thanks, Rita
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 8, 2013Susan Williams answered:
The file is a PPS, I did that on purpose to make it not editable, but I can send it to you in ppt format, or pptx, whichever you prefer. Just email me at sooz_nooz@sbcglobal.net and I will reply and send it to you in another format that is easier to save.

On  November 5, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Hello Susan!! I have a macbook pro and I absolutely love this powerpoint but I need to add a few things to it to make it relevant to what we are learning in class. I am unable to edit it, so I was wondering if there was a way I could download it as an editable file or possibly email it to me? I tried opening it as a powerpoint like you suggested instead of double clicking it in one of the comments, but it wont let me edit it. Thank you so much!

On  November 5, 2012Susan Williams answered:
Hmmm. Once you open it through PowerPoint, Try immediately doing a Save-As and give it a new name (and save it as type PPT or PPTX not PPS)
Then close out and open the newly named file by double-clicking. I hope this helps. If not, please let me know. :)
