Subject: geometry & real life

Dear Geometry Forum Readers,

I am a tenth grade geometry student at Dover-Sherborn High School in Dover, MA.

I know that I am not interested in any occupation that will involve
mathematics. Therefore I would like to know why geometry is a required
course in high school.

If I could be convinced of geometry's usefulness to my everyday life, I
would be more motivated to learn it.

Thanks you in advance for your responses.
