Every day we are surrounded by space, and the shape of things. The
very planet we live on is situated in a universe full of interesting
stars, surrounded by other planets. All of them have different shapes
To be able to understand the wonder of the worlds shape and appreciate
it, we need to be able to understand and have knowledge of spatial
use. In other words the areas related to space and the position, size
and shape of things in it.
Numbers and measurements
When we know how to apply and understand the relationship between
shapes and sizes we will be better prepared to use them in our everyday
lives. Geometry will assist us in doing that, because it provides
the knowledge of how to deal with measurements and relationships of
lines, angles, surfaces and solids.
Some people think in shapes and sizes, others think with visual abilities.
When visualizing we need the understanding of geometry to be able
to do that. Your imagination is like an untapped source of objects
that all need to come together in a bigger picture.
In the workplace
Many different scientific and technological fields require knowledge
of geometry. Especially in the more advanced and specialized study
fields the use and knowledge of Geometry is essential to excelling.
Full use of brain capacity
Geometry helps you to bring together both sides of your brain. In
other words, not just be a left-brain thinker, but also a right-brain
thinker. The left-brain is the more logical, technical field, whereas
the right-brain is the part that visualizes and where the artist gets
their creative inspiration from. Not many people have the ability
to make the two connect and work together as one. Geometry will assist
in doing that.
Creative use of Geometry
Think of geniuses that created man made wonders. They all made use
of geometry to be able to construct and make their creative thinking
come to life. Without the use of geometry it would only have stayed
ideas and dreams. The same with architects that design buildings with
interesting shapes and sizes. Today architects are very creative in
Two and three Dimensional shapes are originated in geometry. The
use of triangles and other shapes strongly influence this. In the
fields of television, movies and even little things like puzzles or
books all are influenced by geometry.
Geometry is a good training ground for students to make use of concrete
materials and activities. Those same experiments now will become stepping
stones later in life. It will prepare you to use many different types
of materials and textures together in fluent harmony.
By applying geometry students learn to think outside the box. The
same solutions can be applied to many other areas of your life. For
instance, when studying the different population groups.
When you learn to use geometry you also learn to think logical. This
is very important in every day life, as not everything is easy and
understandable. When thinking logically many difficult problems can
be erased and simple solutions can be found. To reason logically is
one thing that you learn in Geometry.
Can you see the shocking reality of the importance of using Geometry
in your life? Without even thinking about it, you are using those
concepts that you learned in math class. It is a part of your daily
life, whether you watch television or make a drawing. It is part and
parcel of who you are.
