Abstract: Axes of Symmetry mathematical dominoes are a resource capable of assisting in the teaching of math, information technology and fine arts. The article describes ideas for using it as a game, tournament, or workshop and for independent study. The benefits of working with this resource for enhancing certain competencies, both digital (for students and teachers) and professional (for trainers and teachers), are outlined. Freely accessible electronic resources are presented with Axes of Symmetry dominoes developed with dynamic software that allow both online and offline work.

Keywords: dominoes, symmetry, axes of symmetry, digital competences, STEAM.
