Geometry is one of the important part of mathematics.

The following picture will help us to get the idea about point.

1. Draw a straight path from Sam’s house to the school.

2. Draw a
straight path from the factory to the hospital.

3. Write A at the place where the paths cross.

4. The place where the paths cross in a point. We can use a small dot to make a picture of a point A. When two lines meet we get a point.

5. Observe the picture of the path drawn below. We have shown a point on this path. The name of this point is T.

6. Show another point on the same path. Name it point P.

**Line and Curves:**

There are two paths shown through the point A and B. The point l follows the shortest distance from A and B.

It is a
line. We name a line by two of its points. We may write the name for the
straight line *l* as AB. The other line m is a curve.

The line segment AB is a part of the line p. A line segment stops while a line does not stop.

The line goes on and on in both directions. That is why it is shown by two arrows.

**Closed curves:**

We will observe how the picture looks like when the curve
is closed and when it is not.

**Closed curves – inside
and outside:**

We will observe how the picture looks like when the objects are inside and outside the closed figure.
