Geometry has many uses. It is used whenever we ask questions about the size, shape, volume, or position of an object Geometry is the foundation of physical mathematics present around us. A room, a car, anything with physical constraints is geometrically formed. Geometry allows us to accurately calculate physical spaces and we can apply this to the convenience of mankind. . The geometry is heavily used in drawings, carpeting, sewing, architecture, art, mathematics, measurements, sculptures etc. It has wide usage in space, engineering, textiles engineering etc. All these fields are pursued by thousands of individuals which relate geometry to the life of a common man. In our daily life, most productive uses of simple geometry are: ← When we are trying to decorate our house, we should know that how space our furniture will take up? ← Architects and engineers use geometry in planning buildings, bridges, and roads. ← If we use a ladder, we need to place it at an exact angle so we don't fall. ← It is used for carpet laying or tiles on a floor. ← If we want to paint a room, we should know how many square feet of wall space we are going to paint in order to know how much paint to buy. ← We would need to know how many square feet of lawn we have to buy the correct amount of fertilizer or grass seed. ← If a person wants to have new curtains in his house, he will use geometry to calculate the area of the wall. ← Pastimes like quilting use geometry extensively. Understanding how the shapes of a quilt block fit together is dependent on geometry. ← Stairs are made in our homes in consideration to angles. ← So, next time if we hang a picture, think about it: "we are using geometry!"

...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...

...in the way in which the gate is opened than in the garden lying behind it." (M.C. Escher on tessellations viewed at Alhambra www.mathacedemy.com)
The variety of math used in his body work extends from basic geometric shape to hyperbolic geometry; though there is no need to cover such a wide subject range to explain mathematic influence. Escher was first inspired by the gridded tile patterns, designed in the 14th Century by the Moors, at the Alhambra castle in Granada....

...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...

...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...

The Role of Manipulatives in Arithmetic and Geometry Tasks
December 13, 2011, Tuesday at 6:09 in the late afternoon, I am reading my journal in Geometry. I do not have choice but to do it because it is our duty- a duty for us to accomplish this requirement. The deadline of submission is on December 16, 2011, Friday. I only have three more days to complete my reaction paper. I hope I can finish it before that...

...Geometry Rationale
Geometry is Greek for geos, which means Earth, and metron meaning measure. It can conceivably lay claim to being the oldest branch of mathematics outside arithmetic, and humanity has probably used geometrical techniques since before the dawn of recorded history. Initially, as with the Egyptians, geometry originated from practical necessity and the need to measure land. Geometry today is the science of observing and...
