The term geometry is applied by the mathematics of the measurement, properties as well as the relationships of lines, points, angles, solids and surfaces. It could be applied to a particular system of geometry such as Euclidean geometry. It has also been used to refer to a geometry limited to a class of objects or of problems such as solid geometry. The term geometry may also be applied to a book on geometry. It could refer to a configuration; or an arrangement. It is applied to a surface shape. It may also be used to refer to a physical arrangement which suggests geometric forms or lines.

The term geometry comes from the Middle English word geometrie; from Old French as well as from the Latin word gemetria; from the Greek word gemetri; which comes from the term gemetrein, meaning to measure land. It is a breakup of ge-, geo, meaning earth plus metron, metria, meaning measure.

Related terms include the nouns geometrician and geometer. It is interesting to note that Geometry and the study of numbers were the two disciplines of pre-modern mathematics.
