Geometry is all about shapes, sizes and their properties. We all come across different shapes in our daily life and are aware of a couple of them such as circles, cubes, triangles, squares, parallelograms and so on. The word Geometry was derived from the Greek word meaning measurement of the earth.
Euclid- a Greek mathematician is referred to as a founder and father of Geometry. Apart from math, Geometry is widely used in various fields, including physics, art, architecture, and in other branches of mathematics. It is mainly related to the area, length, volume, and properties of solid figures present all around us.
We use different geometric tools for constructing geometrical figures and the most commonly used geometric tools are scale, protractor, divider, set-squares and compasses.
