Geometry is the study of how to use math to describe and investigate different points, lines, and shapes.
The way that a shape is described in geometry is with a formula, which is simply a mathematical way to calculate different properties of a shape like size, area, or volume.
Volume is a unique property of three-dimensional shapes because three-dimensional shapes take up space in three different directions.
Most real-world objects are three dimensional: balls, cars, food, etc.
Geometric modeling is very important for manufacturing because a product needs to have the same shape, made the same way, every time.
In this mathematics science project you will use geometry to produce a mathematical model of an M&M'S candy.If you look closely, you will see that the volume of an M&M'S candy is a bit irregular - it is not quite perfectly round.It looks like a ball shape (sphere) that has been squished on one side, as shown in Figure 1 below.The problem with geometric formulas is that they describe "perfect" or "ideal" shapes.A sphere is an "ideal" three-dimensional shape that is perfectly circular in all directions.Even though a ball is spherical in shape, it is not a perfect sphere.
