Geometry

Satellite based GPS systems, physicists and architects all use geometry.  Most students begin to understand how geometry intersects with life through their understanding of  planes, lines, angles and points. As they learn how to apply theorems and deduct proofs they build an essential foundation for spatial reasoning and mathematical understanding.
