Geometry is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. Geometry is one of the oldest mathematical sciences. Initially a body of practical knowledge concerning lengths, areas, and volumes, in the 3rd century BC geometry was put into an axiomatic form by Euclid, whose treatment "Euclidean geometry" set a standard for many centuries to follow.

Archimedes developed ingenious techniques for calculating areas and volumes, in many ways anticipating modern integral calculus. The field of astronomy, especially mapping the positions of the stars and planets on the celestial sphere and describing the relationship between movements of celestial bodies, served as an important source of geometric problems during the next one and a half millennia. A mathematician who works in the field of geometry is called a geometer.

The introduction of coordinates by René Descartes and the concurrent development of algebra marked a new stage for geometry, since geometric figures, such as plane curves, could now be represented analytically, i.e., with functions and equations. This played a key role in the emergence of infinitesimal calculus in the 17th century. Furthermore, the theory of perspective showed that there is more to geometry than just the metric properties of figures: Perspective is the origin of projective geometry. The subject of geometry was further enriched by the study of intrinsic structure of geometric objects that originated with Euler and Gauss and led to the creation of topology and differential geometry.

As well as helping with many things in everyday life such as shape, size and relative positions of objects and understanding coordinates for use when reading a map for example, geometry teaches us the basic skill of logical thinking and reasoning.  As it's true we won't encounter the terms line, point, bisect, angle, parallel lines, etc. In everyday living, but through these concepts the power of reasoning and logical thinking is presented.  By going through the process of reasoning and proving we exercise our brain by tackling numerous everyday activities that require us to be an intelligent and critical human being not easily swayed by brute mass opinions no matter how many people hold such opinions.

It is interestin that geometry, a simple subject, has been a great help to human life.
Without it, where could these buildings come from?, where could these vehicles come from?, where could these clothing come from?, or where could these electronics even come from?
Geometry is used almost in all types of jobs. Even all the people can use simple geometry in their daily life like for scheduling your day, preparing meals, or even proportioning your money.
That's how great geometry is.

Without geometry, in some cases we would have to perform functions of our lives by trial and error.  With geometry we have given functions to work with and much more expansion of knowledge is possible.

#  First, the world is built of shape and space, and geometry is its mathematics.
# Second, informal geometry is good preparation. Students have trouble with abstraction if they lack sufficient experience with more concrete materials and activities.
# Third, geometry has more applications than just within the field itself. Often students can solve problems from other fields more easily when they represent the problems geometrically.
# And finally-a related point-many people think well visually. Geometry can be a doorway to their success in mathematics.
# because of geometry their so many beautiful buildings

Without geometry we cannot build something, and everything around us will not appear that's how geometry is important to our life

I used geometry to build a sand volleyball court in my back yard. Without geometry, I wouldn't have known how much sand to buy. First, I measured to find the area of my court. Then decided how deep I wanted the sand, and found the volume of sand I needed.  I've used geometry to find out how many square inches of pizza my family eats, to arrange furniture in the most functional way, to order material for different projects, the list goes on and on! Geometry can be used in everything! The whole universe is just space. Geometry just lets you know the amount of  space that is or isn't occupied.  msfavs.bravehost.com

If there is no measurement we will a big problem in our life because it is very helpful to us for example:measuring medicines,measure a place,measuring ingredients for a recipe imagine what could happen when there is no measurement in our lives!

Of course it's not only geometry that should be singled out when this question is asked.  There are many subjects such as history, language, philosophy, psychology, etc. That I feel are irrelevant and should not be studied in school.  But I strongly disagree about Geometry.  Geometry is about reasoning, logical thinking.
Unfortunately, many students who are complaining about Geometry are not fortunate enough to be good in this department.  In everyday life, we indulge in thinking, reasoning, convincing, analysis and debating.  Geometry teaches us the basic skill of logical thinking and reasoning.  It's true we won't encounter the terms line, point, bisect, angle, parallel lines, etc. In every day living, but through these concepts the power of reasoning and logical thinking is presented.  By going through the process of reasoning and proving we in turn exercise our brain faculty in tackling numerous everyday activities that require us to be intelligent and critical person not easily swayed by brute mass opinions no matter how many hold such opinions.
