Geometry in Everyday Life
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 oldest sciences and is concerned with questions of shape, size and relative position of figures and with properties of space.

Geometry is considered an important field of study because of its applications in daily life.

Geometry is mainly divided in two ;

Plane geometry - It is about all kinds of two dimensional shapes such as lines,circles and triangle. Lines -- [pic] Circle-- [pic] Solid geometry - It is about all kinds of three dimensional shapes like Polygons:-

Role of geometry in daily life

Role of geometry in the daily life is the foundation of physical mathematics. A room, a car, a ball anything with physical things is geometrically formed.

Geometry applies us to accurately calculate physical spaces.

In the world , Anything made use of geometrical constraints this is important application in daily life of geometry.

Example: Architecture of a thing, design, engineering, building etc.

Geometry is particularly useful in home building or improvement projects. If you need to find the floor area of a house, you need to use geometry. If you want to replace a piece of furniture, you need to calculate the amount of fabric you want, by calculating the surface area of the furniture.

...NTRODUCTION:
Geometry is used to know about all kinds of shapes and their properties in our dailylife problems.
Plane geometry - It is about all kinds of two dimensional shapes such as lines, circles and triangles.
Solid geometry - It is about all kinds of three dimensional shapes like polygons, prisms, pyramids, sphere, cylinder.
The word Geometry comes from Greek which means earth and metron. Geometry used in variousobjects such as surveying, astronomy, navigation and building etc of dailylife application. Geometry is actually called as Euclidean geometry.

...everyday life. We spend the majority of our school years studying and learning the concepts of it. Many times, the question of ‘why do we need to know these things?’ has been asked. The following report will explain the history and purpose of geometry in our lives. ‘Geometry’ means ‘measure of the earth’. In ancient Egypt, the Nile would flood its banks each year, flooding the land and destroying the farm areas. When the waters receded and the people had to redefine the boundaries. This work was called geometry and was seen as a re-establishment of the principle of law and order on earth. (Lawlor, 6) Geometry is the mathematics of the properties, measurement, and relationship of the points, lines, angles, surfaces, and solids (Foner and Garraty). An ancient Greek mathematician, named Euclidean, was the founder of the study of geometry. Euclid’s Elements is the basis for modern school textbooks in geometry. On the other hand, there is non-Euclidean geometry. This refers to the types of geometry which deny Euclid’s postulate about parallel lines. Once Albert Einstein put forth the theory of Relativity other approaches to geometry, besides Euclid’s wa

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 life are not always evident to teenagers, but the reality is geometry infiltratesevery facet of our daily living.

... New Begin
After the summer vacation was over, I went back to school . The new semester began. The familiar campus evoked memories of my first. I still remembered I couldn’t find the classroom and there was a light quiver in my voice, my hands were shaking when I stood in front of the class to introduce myself in my first class last year. In the beginning, I felt uneasy and nervous in the unfamiliar surroundings. Luckily, I made lot of friendly friends and also oriented myself in school over the past year. For me, a new semester means a new start. In the new semester, as a transfer student I still had lots of class to make up. Besides, I gave myself a new challenge. I chose Germen as my minor subject. After few courses of Germen, I considered German was a very difficult language to learn. In studying a second foreign language, I may encounter different kinds of obstacles so I should spend more time and effort into my learning. This is my second years in school and I am a junior now. In the meanwhile, it is my last two years in college. In the future, I expect that I can partake in different variety of extra-curricular activities in the school, give different try and have plans for the future. Also, I hope I can have more confidence in myself at school and try my best to conquer my fear of speaking English in public. After the summer vacation was over, I went back to school .

...Life without mathematics
Do any of us realize the importance of maths in our dailylife? This is a subject that is applied to every field and profession. Without the application of maths, no field or profession is complete. To help us realize this why don’t we imagine a world without maths?
Imagine living your days without a watch and a calendar. Both the watch and the calendar use numbers, the most basic and important of mathematic characters. How would you know the time of the day? Wouldn’t you miss your own birthday without a calendar?
Consider this, you go to a shop to buy something but since this is a world without maths, you don’t know what money is, you don’t know measurements. So what do you do?
Whether it is a Zoologist assessing the number of animal species on earth or a doctor checking your heartbeat they have to know how to count. Without mathematics an engineer cannot build a bridge. A quantity checker chemist cannot prepare medicines if he cannot accurately measure the quantity of each chemical.
We wouldn’t have had markets and businesses without math as the world of trade runs on money. And as a country’s development depends heavily on its economic growth, wouldn’t that be a problem?
There wouldn’t be any more advancements of technology as each sector of technology directly or indirectly employs the application of mathematics. We are all so used to technology of various types that it will be difficult to live...

Introduction
"Geometry," meaning "measuring the earth," is the branch of math that has to do with spatial relationships. In other words, geometry is a type of math used to measure things that are impossible to measure with devices. For example, no one has been able take a tape measure around the earth, yet we are pretty confident that the circumference of the planet at the equator is 40,075.036 kilometres (24,901.473 miles) . How do we know that? The first known case of calculating the distance around the earth was done by Eratosthenes around 240 BCE. What tools do you think current scientists might use to measure the size of planets? The answer is geometry.
However, geometry is more than measuring the size of objects. If you were to ask someone who had taken geometry in high school what it is that s/he remembers, the answer would most likely be "proofs." (If you were to ask him/her what it is that s/he liked the least, the answer would probably be "proofs.") A study of Geometry does not have to include proofs. Proofs are not unique to Geometry. Proofs could have been done in Algebra or delayed until Calculus. The reason that High School Geometry almost always spends a lot of time with proofs is that the first great Geometry textbook, "The Elements," was written exclusively with proofs....
