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 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.

...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...

...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...

Reaction Paper
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 day comes. I hope I have the ideas to fill up the empty space in the bond paper. I hope I have an open mind to understand what I will be reading. Oh gosh! My time starts at 1, 2… 3!
I figure out doing that intro so that Ma’am can know that I am really reading my journal. Ha-ha! Another reason is for me to react immediately on what I have read. It is because my thoughts are fading easily. That is why I have to write at once. If I do not respond to this, I will have hard time thinking on what I will put on this paper. Well, anyways, let us proceed with my reflection.
“… children were more successful with manipulative than with pictures …, all children were more likely to rotate their paper or physical shape when this action could help them identify the shape.” These are some lines that can be found in my journal. While I was reading these, I remembered Prof. Pabayos, exclusively during the time she is teaching the prisms. As she draws the geometric figure, specifically the...

Descriptive Geometry
“Drawing is the language of design, and if drawing can be thought of as a language then, descriptive geometry is the grammar of this language.”
Definition:
Descriptive geometry is the branch of geometry which allows the representation of three-dimensional objects in two dimensions, by using a specific set of procedures. The resulting techniques are important for engineering, architecture, design and in art. The theoretical basis for descriptive geometry is provided by planar geometric projections. Gaspard Monge is usually considered the "father of descriptive geometry". He first developed his techniques to solve geometric problems in 1765 while working as a draftsman for military fortifications, and later published his findings. Monge’s protocols allow an imaginary object to be drawn in such a way that it may be 3-D modeled. All geometric aspects of the imaginary object are accounted for in true size/to-scale and shape, and can be imaged as seen from any position in space. All images are represented on a two-dimensional surface. Descriptive geometryuses the image-creating technique of imaginary, parallel projectors emanating from an imaginary object and intersecting an imaginary plane of projection at right angles.

...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 measuring shapes, surfaces, angles, lines and the relationships between these things. One might think that Geometry is sort of removed from daily life, but we are constantly surrounded by it. Everything in our environment has shape, lines, surfaces and angles and so the child has been experiencing these things in everything that surrounds them.
"Pythagoras was a Greek who was born in Samos about 580 BC. When he was nearly fifty years old he went to live in Italy near the city of Naples. He founded a religious order, which meant that he spent much of his time walking about with other men like him in long robes and thinking about the divine order in the universe. Pythagoras and his friends were looking for harmony, which they found all about them. Pythagoras had studied music, especially the harp. He noted a relationship between the harmony in the music and the study of mathematics. Other people of that time thought they could find answers to their questions about the...
