Geometry in Everyday Life Student Example

Perpendicular Lines This is part of a cinder block wall at school.

Perpendicular Lines This is part of the sidewalk at school. The lines are perpendicular.

Parallel Lines This is part of the fence of the tennis court. The posts are parallel.

Parallel Lines The blinds in our classroom have strings that support each blade and are parallel.

Intersecting Lines Part of the gate in the back of the school has lines that are intersecting. In this case, the line in the middle is a support for the vertical lines.

Intersecting Lines Part of the sidewalk, as shown in the picture, has lines that are intersecting. You can see several different lines in this picture.

Polygon The white “stop” strip in the parking lot is an example of a rectangle.

Polygon The American Flag is a great example of several polygons. In this case, each stripe is a rectangle along with the blue. The stars are polygons as well which are convex.

3-Dimensional Shapes The trash can in the hallway is an example of a rectangular prism.

3-Dimensional Shapes The podium in our classroom is an example of a trapezoidal prism.

Plane Within A Plane The bulletin board in the science hallway is an example of a plane that lies within a plane. One plane is the wall and the other plane is the bulletin board itself.

Plane Within A Plane The dry-erase board in our classroom is an example of a plane that lies within a plane. One plane is the wall and the other plane is the dry-erase board itself.

What we learned… We learned how you could see geometry in everyday life.
