Symmetry Shuffle is nice ‘Math Doodles' recreational math puzzle app for iPad device that can sharpen your spatial reasoning as well as get your all neurons sparking. Since the world of math is not limited to the numbers, it includes spatial reasoning and geometry as the important elements of mathematics. Normally, mathematicians make use of symmetry and geometric modeling to examine the mathematical situations and find a solution of problems. This mathematical puzzle app enables all users to explore the line and rotational symmetry. Also, they can generate strategies and improve their spatial sense for solving problems. All target designs are organized on screen within random orientations.
Just employ flips (reflections), slides (translations) and turns (rotations) to move & match a figure with target images. Your level will be achieved when all target designs have been matched. Symmetry Shuffle iPad app includes two modes of play: Solve and Race. In Solve Mode, solve puzzles in fewest moves without any time limit. Select from 12 different puzzle designs, 2 difficulty levels and 5 game board layouts. Race against the clock and earn as many points possible before time limit in Race Mode. Try your best to earn bonus time and proceed to the harder levels.
