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 at where geometry gets its name. Geometry is derived from the Greek words for Earth (Geo) and measure (metria). It was put into practice by the ancient Greeks and continues to be used throughout the world today. It is the science of measuring shapes, angles, areas and distances. By the evidence the ancient Greeks left behind in their amazing ruins, such as the Parthenon, it's no doubt that they had a deep knowledge and understanding of the science of geometry.
Putting Geometry to Work, if you need an example of how geometry affects you on a daily basis, you need do nothing more than take a look around. What do you see? Maybe it's a bridge. Notice the steel girders underneath? They're arranged using very specific geometry angles to give the bridge its stability. Geometry also dictates the way your home was built, with angles and lines that make the walls sturdy and allow the roof to shed...

...have presented a similar design.
Margaret Koshoni developed the Cone Cooker to suit the needs of Nigerian women. Most people live in flats with balconies; the structure of the balconies will shade the CooKit and make a shadow. The Cone Cooker being placed on a stand has the advantage of elevation and the stand can be moved about without disturbing the cooking.
Medved et al., propose an interesting design (1996) called a 'SOLAR BALL'. It is an inflatable plastic ball with lower part of 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.
photovoltaic solar cells
PV cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers. The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced. Groups of cells are mounted together in panels or modules that can be mounted on your roof.
The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp). That's the rate at which it generates energy at peak performance in full direct sunlight during the summer. PV cells come in a...

...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 emerging in the West as early as Thales (6th Century BC). By the 3rd century BC geometry was put into an axiomatic form by Euclid, whose treatment—Euclidean geometry—set a standard for many centuries to follow.[1] Archimedes developed ingenious techniques for calculating areas and volumes, in many ways anticipating modern integral calculus. The field of astronomy, especially mapping the positions of the stars and planets on the celestial sphere and describing the relationship between movements of celestial bodies, served as an important source of geometric problems during the next one and a half millennia. Both geometry and astronomy were considered in the classical world to be part of the Quadrivium, a subset of the seven liberal arts considered essential for a free citizen to master.

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....

Description
In this project we try to find situations in daily life where geometrical notions can be effectively used. In particular, in the following examples the student discovers situations in which properties of similar triangles learnt in the classroom are useful.
Students 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 trigonometry.
