The** geometry works **to solve various problems related to measurements of areas, lengths and volumes. It is a set of concepts, theorems, hypotheses, and constructions that study the properties of plane and space figures.

This matter is considered one of the oldest sciences invented by man. It is one of the branches of mathematics that is responsible for studying the properties and shapes of a geometric body.

Geometry is always in constant exchange with other aspects such as algebra, arithmetic, mathematical analysis and the theory of functions.

Theodolite, compass and pantograph are some of the instruments used to create the necessary precision for the measurement of objects.

**Primary uses of geometry**

**1- In measurements**

Geometry can be used to measure physical bodies and to know the properties that dominate in the representation of the objects that are around.

It is mainly used to know and determine the dimensional properties of various sciences and technological areas.

It can also be applied in the creation of industrial designs, in architectural plans and even in engineering plans.

The objective of geometry is to help structure the use of logical-mathematical content, in order to implement these concepts in real life.

**2- In education**

Knowing about space, the relevance of positions, shapes and geometric figures is of vital importance in the educational area, especially in the children’s educational process.

From an early age it is convenient that children are educated on this matter to relate space and figures that are part of their reality.

There is a close relationship between geometry and artistic expression. It can be used as a teaching method to help children in training feel interested or motivated to play, using the notions that are implemented in it.

Learners can put into practice direct observations of space through the senses. They can even develop spatial thinking while playing.

The use and understanding of geometry is also useful for higher education students who wish to develop visual, reasoning, communication and plastic skills.

**3- In art**

There are many artists who have used geometric concepts and figures in their plastic representations. It can even be seen that geometry is a basic component for these creations.

An example of this is the Colombian sculptor and painter Fernando Botero, whose works are dominated by circular figures.

**4- In language**

Geometry can be used when using verbal language when trying to communicate with other people: when talking about the shape of an object, a location, when explaining properties, and even terminology.

At that time direct use is made of geometric terms. For example, concepts such as the plane, the curve, the line, a point, the angle, the parallel, among others.
