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 universe in matter itself, but Pythagoras looked for these answers in numbers." - Paula Polk Lillard, Montessori Today

When teaching geometry to the 6-8 year old child, introducing materials in their historical contexts reveals their interrelationship. Children also enjoy stories, this will make the lesson more exciting and interesting, and it will help them to see the connections to practical life. Geometry should be taught throughout the year in the Montessori classroom, it is a very integral part of the experience. Tracing the metal insets from the geometric...

...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.

...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...

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.

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 geometry uses the image-creating technique of imaginary, parallel projectors emanating from an imaginary object and intersecting an imaginary plane of projection at right angles.

...one thing I focus on is “do I understand the material we covered today?” This will allow the material to build itself up in my head, and I will be less stressed come test time.
Research
For my research topic, I wanted to study Isaac Newton. But Mr. Corby wouldn’t let me do this. So I was given a less cool mathematician, Euclid.
Euclid was a Greek mathematician, and was often considered the “father of geometry.” He was born around 330 BC, and he got his training at Plato’s Academy in Athens. He taught mathematics at the Library of Alexandria in Alexandria, Egypt. His most celebrated accomplishment was his drafting of Elements, a volume of 13 works that compiled general geometric knowledge.
Some of the most basic theorems in Elements are: “a point is that which has no part”, “a line is a breadthless (without width) length”, ”the ends of a line are points”, and “a surface is that which has length and breadth (width) only.” All of these definitions appear in the first of 13 books. There are over 150 definitions in these volumes, dealing with both plane and spatial geometry.
Nearly all of these definitions and propositions are still agreed upon the world over, and they are used as tools to teach students the properties of geometric figures.
One of the most important postulates Euclid drafted was the “Pythagorean Theorem”, a relation between the side lengths of right triangles. This theorem is one of the many definitions and proposals...

...“Bringing it all Together: The Geometry of Golf”
Golf in Geometry?? No Way!
Geometry In The Game of Golf
For hundreds of years, golf has been an extremely popular and growing sport all around the world. Looking where golf is now, it is growing rapidly from the young to the elder population. The first round of gold was first played in the 15th century off the coast of Scotland, but it did not start to be played until around 1755. The standard rules of golf were written by a group of Edinburgh golfers. Today, people of the US, Scotland, and England, have been drawn to the game because it is fun, challenging, and hardly any athletic ability at all is required for amateurs. In breaking down the game, geometry plays a major role, and can influence a players score dramatically. Geometry plays a key role and influences aspects such as the ball, course, or golf swing.
First Geometry is important in the design of the golf ball. It is crucial that the golf ball is not a perfect sphere, but as close to a sphere as possible. Before man could create the perfect golf ball, the main idea was to create a close to perfect sphere without any implications that would mess up the distance and direction of the ball. If the ball is not a perfect sphere, without any davits, the ball would not get any spin on it and would go the wrong direction.
Furthermore geometry is used in...

Geometry in gardens and parks
Gabriela Pavlovičová, Lucia Rumanová and Valéria Švecová
1 Introduction
Development of children’s perception of geometric content is related with environment where early age children are brought up and gain everlasting and informal knowledge. It is important to combine the knowledge with real life situations. This can be done by solving applied mathematical problems developing pupil’s independence, activity and creativity from lowest grades of elementary school. By solving applied mathematical problems pupils should be able to verbalize problems, find missing information to solve problems, make relations and be able to formulate and interpret results. When developing tasks, we focused on increasing pupils’ motivation to problem solving. We were inspired by beautiful gardens and parks as a rich source of geometrical objects. Solving the tasks, pupils also develop spatial imagination and apply already acquired knowledge on geometry. For task development pictures and photographs of modern and historical gardens and parks are inevitable. The tasks are divided according to used context: x x x x geometrical shapes in parks and gardens, symmetry in parks and gardens, mazes in parks and gardens, measure in parks and gardens.
Introduction of each thematic unit includes tasks with identical solution, but different assignment: standard assignment and assignment motivated by...
