# NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Math Chapter 14: Practical Geometry The students will learn the methods of drawing geometrical shapes in this chapter. Practical Geometry is used to measure various shapes and dimensions around us. Geometrical ideas are reflected in all forms of art, measurements, architecture, engineering, cloth designing etc. In order to measure and construct the figures, knowledge of geometry becomes important. In chapter 4, Basic Geometrical Ideas students were introduced to terms like points, line segment, line, intersecting lines, ray, curve etc. The above-mentioned topics are inter-related. In this chapter, they will learn to use the tools, for instance, protractor to construct angles of 90 degrees, 45 degrees, 30 degrees, 60 degrees, 120 degrees, 135 degrees, etc.Many new terms have been introduced, and students are advised to keep in mind that these terms are just the introduction of geometry. Enough attention must be given to grasping the fundamental concepts of geometry. This chapter also lays the groundwork for the further complex topics which are introduced in the subsequent chapters of mensuration taught in higher classes. The topics covered in this chapter lay the ground for a better understanding of fractions which will be taught in class 6 in subsequent chapters. All the topics of this chapter are essential for an understanding of further chapters of only class 6 but higher classes as well. The following mathematical instruments to construct shapes:
