Welcome to learning about geometry. Did you know that geometry is also known as a science. In fact, it is one of the oldest sciences. For centuries, it was the way that celestial bodies in the heavens were mapped. This is because geometry is concerned with size, shape and relative positions of figures that have properties of space. In fact, the word geometry is Greek and means “earth measurement”.
