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.

...How is geometry used in everydaylife? 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...

...reflective material. The cooking vessel is kept at the base. It is an interesting variation but there appears to be some serious limitations with reference to size of the ball as well as size and handling of the cooking vessel.
Recently, the spherical geometry seems to have made a come back, and we see that at Auroville in India a 15 meter diameter mirror cooks food for over 1500 persons. A similar large solar bowl was built at the University of Mexico.

...Geometry (Ancient Greek: γεωμετρία; geo- "earth", -metron "measurement") is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the field of geometry is called a geometer. Geometry arose independently in a number of early cultures as a body of practical knowledge concerning lengths, areas, and volumes, with elements of a formal mathematical science...

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...

...NTRODUCTION:
Geometry is used to know about all kinds of shapes and their properties in our daily life problems.
Plane geometry - It is about all kinds of two dimensional shapes such as lines, circles and triangles.

The word Geometry comes from Greek which means earth and metron....

...Culture is a way of life for people, and it helps construct the foundation for people's values, beliefs, and choices in life. Culture makes societies unique, making it an essential element in influencing our everyday lives. As it's carried from generation to generation, people will adapt to new technology and changes, but the principals remain the same. There is no doubt that my culture has influenced me in making almost every decision in my...

...attitudes, beliefs and assumptions through a life span. J Piaget, a proponent of cognitive theory, developed a general thesis of cognitive theory; he divided the developmental process of thinking into four stages. He said “the way people think changes with age as their brains mature and their experiences challenge their past assumptions” (Griggs 3rd edition, 2013)”. In my opinion, we use and apply the main concepts of the cognitive theory in everyday...
