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 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:...

...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 areas had to be discovered. From this circumstance the name “Geometry” has evolved. The word “Geometry” originated from the word “Geo” means “earth” in Greek and “metros” means “to measure”.
It was arose as the field of knowledge dealing with spatial relationships. It began with a practical need to measure shapes. It is the science of shape and size of things.
Geometry was one of the two fields of pre-modern mathematics, the other being the study of numbers.
ANCIENT GEOMETRY (3000BCE – 500BCE)
*Many ancient civilizations like the Babylonians, Egyptians, Hindus and Chinese, laid the foundation for geometry as practiced today.Before recorded history, geometry existed as simply, * the science of measuring land and storage containers. The first concepts of geometry “had their origin in simple observations stemming from human ability to recognize physical form and to compare shapes 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 surfaces and of planar figures, such as the triangle; proportion in general, a particular kind of relation between groups of numbers or quantities; the properties of numbers; incommensurable magnitudes; and solid geometry, branch of geometry that deals with the properties and measurement of geometric figures in three-dimensional space. Some people say that the geometrical sections of Elements were actually rearrangements of Exodus previous work. However Euclid himself is said to have made several discoveries in his Number Theory, which is a branch of mathematics that deals with the properties and relationships of numbers.
Most historians believe Euclid was educated at Athens. His teachers may have included pupils of Plato, who was a philosopher and one of the most influential thinkers in Western philosophy. Euclid thought geometry in Alexandria and opened a school of mathematics there. He also wrote Data, which was a collection of...

...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.
History of geometry

...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 something of his personality, involves a student that has just finished his first geometry lesson. The pupil asked what he would gain from learning geometry. Euclid told his slave to get the student a coin so he would be gaining from his studies. Another story says that Ptomlemy asked Euclid if there was an easier way to learn geometry, the mathematician responded, "there is no royal road to geometry", and sent the king to study. Euclid wrote many books such as Data, On Divisions of Figures, Phaenomena, Optics, the lost books Conics and Porisms. He is famous for his Elements, presented in thirteen books of the geometry and other mathematics known in his day. The first six books involve elementary plane geometry and have served as the basis for most beginning courses on this subject. The other books of the Elements take care of the theory of numbers and certain problems in math (on a geometric basis) and...

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.
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 corcerned with questions of shape, size and relative position of figures and with properties of space.
Geometry is considered an important field pf study because of its applications in daily life.
Geometry is mainly divided in to two which is plane geometry and solid geometry. Plane geometry is about all kinds of two dimensional shapes such as lines, circles, and triangles. While Solid geometry is about all kinds of three dimensional shapes like polygons, prisms, pyramids, sphere and cylinder.

...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, rectangles and squares. They also deal with problems with circles, and circles in general. Books seven through nine explain the number theory. In particular book seven is a self-contained introduction to number theory and contains the Euclidean algorithm for finding the greatest common divisor of two numbers. Book eight talks about geometrical progressions. The tenth book explains the theory of irrational numbers. It is mainly based upon the work of Theaetetus. Euclid had to change many of the proofs written by Eudoxus. From book eleven through thirteen, describes the geometries of three-dimensional shapes. More than one thousand editions of this book have been printed since its first edition in 1482. Euclid also wrote many other books. Data, On Divisions, Optics, and Phenomena are all other books that have survived. The ones that have been lost are Surface Loci, Porisms, Conics, Fallacies and Elements of Music.
Euclid has enabled us today, the ability to create and learn more about geometry. He created...

...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 wheregeometry 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 water and snow. Maybe you see...
