Euclidean Geometry

The Plane geometry learned in high school, based upon a few ideal, smooth, symmetric shapes.

Euclidean Geometry

A system of geometry that deals with objects on a plane. Its theory is based on five postulates, from which a number of theoretical proofs are derived.

While all students have generally been exposed to Euclidean geometry, most do not know much about non-Euclidean geometries and are very intrigued, if at times baffled, by this different perspective.
Moreover, the process of solution employing different methods and techniques involves the application of rules of the subjects of Euclidean geometry and other fields , their integration and reinforcement both in the sense of their specific required skills, and, in some cases also skills from other mathematical fields such as algebraic skills, as a byproduct.
If space is curved then Euclidean geometry, which is one of many axiomatic systems, does not apply.
