## Geometry Problems for Kids

In geometry, all roads lead to geometry problems. Whether your kids are studying about areas, volumes, or properties of triangles, the ultimate test of their understanding is whether they can apply the information to solve related geometry problems.

## Why Geometry Problems are Important

Geometry problems test a student’s understanding of the geometric concepts learned in the past, and require students to apply that understanding to solve the problem presented. Solving geometry problems gives students much needed geometry practice and strengthens their logical thinking, problem solving and analytical skills. It also helps teachers gauge how well students have understood the geometric concepts, and identify the areas in which extra help is needed. Only when students demonstrate their ability to correctly solve related geometry problems can they consider themselves well-versed in any specific geometric concept.

## Solving Geometry Word Problems

Geometry word problems help students understand the real world application of geometric concepts. From calculating the amount of sheet metal required to construct metal pipes of a certain length and width, to calculating the length of the shadow of a pole at a certain time of the day, geometric concepts suddenly take on extra significance when solving geometry word problems. Solving geometry word problems can be tricky, as students must be able to understand which pieces of information are relevant, and how the information can be represented in a geometric diagram. However, as with other types of geometry problems, there’s nothing like regular geometry practice to become a pro at solving geometry word problems!
