This year, both as a student and as a person, I learned a tremendous amount. For instance, I learned that in England, its spelled “grey”, but in America its spelled “gray”. That pretty much was the coolest and most useful thing I have heard in a long time, let alone in the past 10 months. But I am not in a position today to discuss this, and thus I will be detailing everything else I have learned that has fallen short.

Scholastically, I’ve grown to appreciate the value of a simple device known as an “agenda”. This groundbreaking advancement in academic technology provides a clear and concise answer to the age-old question, “what was the homework for tonight?” In years past, I would waste countless, valuable minutes flocking to mobile devices and social network platforms in a desperate attempt to ascertain from my fellow classmates exactly what our assignment was. I felt like a fool being the lone unenlightened one. The one who just didn’t know…

Basically I think I did a better job this year of keeping track of my assignments by writing them down in my agenda.
The three adjectives that best describe me are: confident, dynamic, and witty. Confident because speaking, acting, singing, or playing music in front of hundreds, even thousands of people genuinely does not frighten me. Also, because I hold strong beliefs in my abilities to get tasks done. Dynamic because my talents and interests range broadly. I write, direct, and produce my own short films, I act in the school theater company, and I play a number of instruments including guitar and piano. And witty because what did the Zen Buddhist say to the hot dog vendor? Make me one with everything.

Strengths of mine include my note-taking skills. Even if I have know idea what the heck the teacher is talking about, I can very easily at least get it all on paper. I can use this to my advantage to better outline my own study guides for tests and quizzes, and also to assist...

...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...

...Little is know about Euclid, the father of geometry. Records show that he lived somewhere around 300 B.C. He was a Greek mathematician and is probably best known for his work Elements. Since little is known about the personal life of Euclid, it is difficult to do a biography on him.
His chief work, entitled Elements, is a comprehensive essay on mathematics. It includes 13 volumes that entail such subjects as plane geometry, dealing with the properties of flat...

...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 was throughly organized in about 300 B.C, when the Greek mathematician, Euclid gathered what was known at the time; added original book of his ownand arranged 465 propositions into 13 books called Elements.
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...

...Euclid “Father of Geometry”
Euclid is a Greek mathematician. He was also known as Euclid of Alexandria, “The Father of Geometry”. Little is known of his life other than the fact that he taught at Alexandria, being associated with the school that grew up there in the late 4th century B.C. It is believed that he taught at Plato's academy in Athens, Greece. Most history states that he was a kind, patient, and fair man. One story that exposes...

...through a point parallel to a given line. His decision to create this postulate enabled him to create what is now called, Euclidean Geometry, taking name after him. Not until the 19th century, was this postulate dropped and non-euclidean geometries were beginning to be studied.
Euclid's elements are divided into 13 books. The first six books are based upon just plane geometry. They give out properties of triangles, parallelograms, parallels,...

...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...
