"The applications of geometry in real life are numerous. Nearly everyday people are faced with major and minor issues that require the use of geometry. Some of these include finding the square footage of a home, determining the volume a container or deciding how much tile is needed to put in a new kitchen floor. The square footage in a home is often determined by length and width of each room combined from the exterior walls. Without geometry we would never know how much square footage of paint to purchase to paint the walls. With geometry, we can figure out how large a pan we need to cook food for a certain number of people for a party as well as how much of each of the ingredients we need to make the food. Finally, geometry can be used to determine the amount of tile or carpeting that is needed to refurbish a floor or it can be used to determine how large of garage you need to house your cars and your workshop. Overall, geometry is used in many everyday tasks throughout our lives." There are applications of geometry all around us in real life from the designing of cars, planes, homes, and buildings to things like computer graphics. Geometry is even used in the medical field. For instance, when a person has a CAT scan test for a brain tumor, geometry is used to show doctors the shape of the tumor. Though geometry is usually not taught in elementary school, even students in kindergarten are being prepared to learn about geometry when they begin learning the shapes of objects, including circles, triangles and squares.There are applications of geometry all around us in real life from the designing of cars, planes, homes, and buildings to things like computer graphics.
