<p>This unit looks at various aspects of shape and space. It uses a lot of mathematical vocabulary, so you should make sure that you are clear about the precise meaning of words such as circumference, parallel, similar and cross-section. You may find it helpful to note down the meaning of each new word, perhaps illustrating it with a diagram.</p><p>This module contains some interactive geometry activities which use the Java based software, Geogebra. You will need to install Java on your computer in order to use the activities. <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.java.com/en">Java can be obtained free</a></span>.

Geometry is concerned with the various aspects of size, shape and space. In this free course you will explore the concepts of angles, shapes, symmetry, area and volume through interactive activities.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/mathematics-and-statistics/mathematics-education/geometry/content-section-0" /> First published on Fri, 01 Apr 2016 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/mathematics-and-statistics/mathematics-education/geometry/content-section-0">Geometry</a>.
