This video discusses the history of geometry starting with Euclid, who is credited as one of the first mathematicians and father of geometry.
Curriki RatingNR

This project introduces students to a brief history of geometry, geometric terms, geometric shapes, and transformation and manipulation of shapes through reflections, tessellations, and dilations. Students will form marketing teams to “sell” geometry by explaining key terms, demonstrating key shapes, and describing the significance of geometry to an audience.
