Did you know that the ancient Egyptians were among the first to use geometry in a practical way? They needed to redraw property boundaries after the annual flooding of the Nile River, so they developed geometry to measure and redefine the land. The word "geometry" itself comes from Greek words meaning "earth" and "measurement," emphasizing its historical connection to land measurement and surveying. So, the next time you learn about shapes and angles, you can think about how geometry has been helping people for thousands of years!
