What is Geometry?



geometry is the part of mathematics that covers the properties, measurement and relationships between points, lines, angles, shapes and objects.

the ruler, protractor, set square and compasses are all instruments that help to study geometry.

Key Skills

  • use a ruler to draw shapes and measure the lengths of lines
  • use a protractor to measure the size of angles and construct shapes
  • use a set square to draw parallel and perpendicular lines and construct shapes
  • use compasses to make constructions and draw circles and arcs.
