Transcript of Geometry in our daily life

Geometry, the study of space and spatial relationships, is an important and essential branch of the mathematics curriculum at all grade levels. The ability to apply geometric concepts is a life skill used in many occupations. The study of geometry provides the student with a vehicle for enhancing logical reasoning and deductive thinking for modeling abstract problems. If we began to the history... The importance of Euclidean geometry is one of historical and practical use for the study of mathematics in today's society. Euclidean geometry is one of the oldest branches of mathematics, developed by Euclid in 300BC, and serves as the basis of modern mathematics that governs our world.
These are reasons why geometry is important in our lives as citizens of the modern world. It is important to understand Euclidean geometry when studying a course because Euclidean geometry does not follow any set pattern. In a course such as calculus, if one knows the pattern or steps to doing a specific type question, then one can easily do these types of questions. But for Euclidean geometry, one can only learn the axioms and results proven from these axioms. The student must apply these axioms with no set pattern or list of steps for solving such problems. Therefore, each problem can have one, two, three, four or infinitely many solutions.
We seem to find aspects of Euclidean geometry everywhere in life. These aspects appear in ones career, in things we take for granted such as bridges, and even the homes we live in. Man used circles and angles to create the sundial, an elementary form of timepiece. The introduction of time made mankind more aware of seasons, age, the concept of motion, and so on. It is important to understand Euclidean geometry even in our entertainment. In such games as pool one uses angles and triangles indirectly to place the balls into the pockets of the pool table. Euclidean geometry is important to understand even for the artist, since most drawings include shapes such as triangles, squares, rhombus, and so on. In modern art these geometric shapes appear as the main concept of the art. So even for artists, an understanding of the very basic concepts of Euclidean geometry is important.
Uses of GEOMETRY IN OUR DAILY LIFE HOW WE USUALLY USE GEOMETRY IN ONE DAY? So, in which aspects we use geometry? Why is Euclidean Geometry Important to Understand?
At the beginning: what does study of geometry is about? Finally.. The study of Geometry develops logical reasoning and deductive thinking, which helps us expand both mentally and mathematically. Euclidean Geometry is a branch of mathematics where one must understand the material, and apply the understood material to discover patterns and relationships. Geometry is also used in the early stages of our life, to help develop the mind in determining differences. We all had the game as a child where we must place the different shapes (square, triangles, circles, and so on) in the right slots. These games help us as toddlers to make deductions that in return expand our mind, and are the first exposure to mathematics we as individuals will encounter. What is a calculus?
Calculus (Latin, calculus, a small stone used for counting) is a branch of mathematics focused on limits, functions, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series. It has two major branches, differential calculus and integral calculus, which are related by the fundamental theorem of calculus. Calculus is the study of change,[1] in the same way that geometry is the study of shape and algebra is the study of operations and their application to solving equations. Calculus has widespread uses in science, economics, and engineering and can solve many problems for which algebra alone cannot. WE use Geometry... In school subject: geomery
in architecture
in nature
in sports
in games
in food
in everything in our life
because everything have shape in our world
( ofcourse except air) 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: Architecture of a thing, design, engineering, building etc. How you use geometry in home? Geometry is particularly useful in home building or improvement projects. If you need to find the floor area of a house, you need to use geometry. If you want to replace a piece of furniture, you need to calculate the amount of fabric you want, by calculating the surface area of the furniture. Geometry in hobbies: Geometry has applications in hobbies. The goldfish tank water needs to have a certain volume as well as surface area in order for the fish to thrive. We can calculate the volume and surface area using geometry.
