Geometry is a part of mathematics. It is related to discovering properties,measurement and the relationship with planes,point,line,angles and shapes.
This word is derived from two Greek words "Geo" meaning earth and "me-tron" meaning measure. This is indicating that early it concerned itself with the measurements of the earth.
The Egyptians were one of the first people to use this. They used them to survey the land as early as 1300 B.C.The study of that was further carried on by Greeks.Thalas (600 B.C) and Pythagoras (540 B.C) were the major contributors. In fact the Pythagorean theorem is still considered as one of the most important theorems.
The credit for compiling known results and systematically developing the subject further goes to Euclid(300 B.C). He had started ten postulates and built an imposing structure based on these.
After Euclid, in the 16th century, Descartes and Fermat founded the analytical . Two centuries later,mathematicians Playfair, Gauss, Bolyai and Lobachevsky tried to make development in geometries and differed from Euclidean in many ways.
In India the seven Sulva Sutras written,between 800 B.C and 500 B.C contain many geometrical results for the construction of heven kunds and sacrifiial alters. In particular the statement Pythagorean theorem is given . Later Aryabhatta, Bhaskaracharya and Brahmagupta made important contributions.In this page we have given lots of questions and answer related to this topic.We have also provided a definition and clear picture of types of lines and types of angles and definition of some terms.By using these links you can clearly understand the concept in a simple way and we have given to test of understanding by using worksheets.Identifying shapes is one of the important pages for kids.They definitely enjoy to identify those shapes. Teachers and parents also can help the students.You can find that link too.
“Mathematics, without this we can do nothing in our life. Each and everything around us is math.
Math is not only solving problems and finding solutions and it is also doing many things in our day to day life. They are:
It subtracts sadness and adds happiness in our life.
It divides sorrow and multiplies forgiveness and love.
Some people would not be able to accept that the subject Math is easy to understand. That is because; they are unable to realize how the life is complicated. The problems in the subject Math are easier to solve than the problems in our real life. When our people are able to solve all the problems in the complicated life, why can we not solve the simple math problems?
Many people think that the subject math is always complicated and it exists to make things from simple to complicate. But the real existence of the subject math is to make things from complicate to simple.”
