# 3D Rotation Symmetry - Cube and Tetrahedron Lesson Objective
In this lesson, we will learn about rotation symmetry for a cube and tetrahedron. After familiarizing with the basics of rotational symmetry, we can now examine the rotational symmetry for 3-Dimensional objects.

In this lesson, we will see examine all the axes of rotational symmetry for a cube and tetrahedron.  CUBE                             TETRAHEDRON

You can proceed by reading the study tips first or watch the math video or try out the practice questions.

# Study Tips Tip #1
For 3D rotational symmetry, the ideas are basically the same as 2D Rotational symmetry.

Looking at the picture, when we rotate the cube 360o about the axis, notice that the cube will fit (i.e. match) itself for 4 times.

When this happens, the axis is called axis of rotational symmetry of order 4.  Tip #2
Next, the cube has a total of 13 axes of rotational symmetry. You can view them by watching the math video below.

Also, the step-by-step solution shown in the practice question will show you the pictures for these axes.  Tip #3
As for the tetrahedron, it has a total of 7 axes of rotational symmetry. You can view these axes in the math video below.

Also, the step-by-step solution shown in the practice question will show you all the pictures of these axes. # Math Video Rotation Symmetry for a Cube Video Rotation Symmetry for a Tetrahedron Video Math Videos Transcript
