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 triangles.

Solid geometry - It is about all kinds of three dimensional shapes like polygons,prisms,pyramids,sphere and cylinder.

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.

Geometry has applications in hobbies. The goldfish tank water needs to have a certain volume as well as surface area in order for the fish to thrive. We can calculate the volume and surface area using geometry.

The definition of geometry is the type of mathematics that focuses on the measurement, relationship, and properties of points, lines, angles, and figures in space. Geometry is found everywhere. In art, architecture, engineering, land surveys, astronomy, sculptures, space, nature, sports, machines, cars and much more. Geometry is the study of the size, shape and position of 2...

Euclidean geometry
Euclidean geometry is a mathematical system attributed to the Alexandrian Greek mathematician Euclid, which he described in his textbook on geometry: the Elements. Euclid's method consists in assuming a small set of intuitively appealing axioms, and deducing many other propositions (theorems) from these. Although many of Euclid's results had been stated by earlier...

mathematician Euclid gathered what was known at the time, added original work of
his own, and arranged 465 propositions into 13 books, called 'Elements'. The
books covered not only plane and solid geometry but also much of what is now
known as algebra, trigonometry, and advanced arithmetic.
Through the ages, the propositions have been rearranged, and many of the...

figures. It also went beyond him showing both the beauty and usefulness of...
