Geometry

Geometry is the branch of mathematics focused on the properties of space related to size and shape. Geometry involves objects such as lines, curves and surfaces. The word "geometry" derives from the Greek words for "earth" and "measurement." Many cultures and periods have studied geometry, with the work of Greek geometer Euclid representing perhaps the most influential work ever written in mathematics.
