Geometry is a branch of mathematics that includes the study of shape, size, and other properties of figures. It is one of the oldest branches of mathematics, probably used even in prehistoric times.

Did you know?

The kind of geometry most students usually study was recorded in The Elements, a set of books written about 300 BC by Euclid, a Greek mathematician. There are now other kinds of geometry as well. These other kinds originated about 2,000 years after Euclid's work.
