"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.

...Geometry in everyday life
Geometry was thoroughly organized in about 300bc, when the Greek mathematician, Euclid gathered what was known at the time; added original work of his own and arranged 465 propositions into 13 books, called Elements.
Geometry was recognized to be not just for mathematicians. Anyone can benefit from the basic learning of geometry, which is to follow the lines reasoning. Geometry is one of the...

...Geometry (Greek γεωμετρία; geo = earth, metria = measure),
Its beginnings can be traced in ancient Egypt or early or before 1700 B.C. Due to necessity, every time the Nile River inundated and deposited fertile soil along the bank, the early Egyptian had to solve the problem of size and boundaries of land along the Nile River. Changes happened in the contour of the land had caused confusion among landowners. So a system of making boundaries, measuring lengths and...

...How is geometry used in everyday life? When you're studying a subject, the science of lines and angles can seem like nothing more than a dull exercise in formulas and predictability. In reality, geometry is at work everywhere you go. Whether you're aware of it or not, geometry quite literally shapes our lives.
An Ancient Science, how long has geometry been around? To answer that question, let's take a look at where...

...Descriptive Geometry
“Drawing is the language of design, and if drawing can be thought of as a language then, descriptive geometry is the grammar of this language.”
Definition:
Descriptive geometry is the branch of geometry which allows the representation of three-dimensional objects in two dimensions, by using a specific set of procedures. The resulting techniques are important for engineering, architecture, design and in...

Geometry is the mathematics of space and shape, which is the basis of all things that exist. Understanding geometry is necessary step by understanding how the things in our world exist. The applications of geometry in real...

...need to be made aware of the fact that the study of geometry arose in response to certain human needs. They should know about the use of geometry in our daily or real life. In this project, students will discover situations in daily life where geometrical concepts can be used effectively. In particular we find situations where the properties of similar triangles are useful and how to find height and distance of any object with the help of geometry and...

...Week Three
In this assignment, you construct an attractive geometric figure and measure certain numerical properties about it using the Pythagorean theorem.
Construction algorithm:
1. Begin on a piece of paper (this can be an MS-Paint palette or other electronic equivalent) at the center. Orient the paper in whichever fashion you desire (portrait or landscape). Starting at the center, designated as C, construct an isosceles right triangle with a congruent leg pointing North from the...

...Geometry has many uses. It is used whenever we ask questions about the size, shape, volume, or position of an object
Geometry is the foundation of physical mathematics present around us. A room, a car, anything with physical constraints is geometrically formed. Geometry allows us to accurately calculate physical spaces and we can apply this to the convenience of mankind. .
The geometry is heavily used in drawings, carpeting, sewing,...
