# Who is the father of geometry?

Question asked by: administer

Asked on: 08 Jan 2010

The father of geometry is usually refer to good old Euclid.

His full name is Euclid of Alexandria.

It is from his principles and key lemmas that most of geometry was derived and indeed most things that he said have been shown to be true (though not all).

We still use Euclidean geometry in school, ie that in two dimensions.
