Doing Geometry gives the mind exercise and thus develops acute mental abilities such as creative thinking, visual imagination, analytical thinking, accurate measurement and spatial sense. It activates both sides of the brain and gives a lot of space for activities in the right hemisphere.
Knowledge in Geometry opens career paths in civil engineering, field surveying, sports, sports field, functional food designs, quality quilting, video games and recreational activities. It requires a fundamental knowledge of Geometry to perform courses of calculation at the university level. In addition, learning the subject improves the aesthetic sense of a human being and helps him enjoy the form and beauty of the things that surround him.
Geometry has several forms. They are triangle, polygon, square, circle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon, hexagram, trapezoid, cube, cuboid, sphere, prism, cone and many more. Students begin to know these forms from their primary and pre-primary level through various practical activities. Doing all these forms is necessary to improve deductive skills, spatial reasoning, problem-solving skills and understanding transformations.
At the elementary school level, students enjoy many hands-on activities to understand the shapes and sizes of geometry. They learn the shape of various geometric objects through perception such as in Pizza pie, cookies (circle), tiles on the floor (squares), apartment buildings, cell phones (rectangle), sandwich cut in half (triangle), design in soccer ball (pentagon), ice crystals (hexagon) among several other shapes and sizes.
