# Geometry

Geometry is one of the most fascinating and widely used branch of mathematics. It is quite understandable since everything you have to know can be seen from sketches or constructions. The word “geometry” derived from the Greek word for “earth measure” which means that geometry is a science that can be derived from observing things around us. By learning geometry you will learn how to observe things and conclude things you want to know using one or more important statements. Theorems, lemmas and statements in this field come very natural to us, so they are not that hard to remember.

## Is there an easier way to start?

If you are new to geometry, it is a good thing to start from the very basics. Start by drawing a line and studying it. This may seem like a trivial thing to do but you’ll come to a realization that it actually isn’t. You may start to realize that that line actually has many properties. Now draw another line. Look at their relation. Do they intersect? Are they parallel? Now you have an object more, and more relations to look at. If they intersect they are enclosing four angles. What do those angles have in common and what not? If you continue like this you will start noticing that there is much more to it than simple lines.  Now get some piece of paper and scissors. Cut out many different triangles and study their relation. What is different about them and what is the same? Remember, geometry isn’t something you can learn simply by remembering some rules and trying everything out, it should be tested and drawn and imagined.
