The Civilizations that Created Geometry
Uses of Geometry in our Daily Lives
Nearly everyday people are faced with major and minor issues that require the use of geometry. Some of these include finding the square footage of a home, determining the volume a container or deciding how much tile is needed to put in a new kitchen floor. The square footage in a home is often determined by length and width of each room combined from the exterior walls. Without geometry we would never know how much square footage of paint to purchase to paint the walls. With geometry, we can figure out how large a pan we need to cook food for a certain number of people for a party as well as how much of each of the ingredients we need to make the food. Finally, geometry can be used to determine the amount of tile or carpeting that is needed to refurbish a floor or it can be used to determine how large of garage you need to house your cars and your workshop. Overall, geometry is used in many everyday tasks throughout our lives.
