# How to Draw Geometric Shapes

Knowledge of geometry grants people good logic, abstract and spatial thinking skills. The object of study of geometry is the size, shape and position, the 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes. Geometry is related to many other areas in math and is used daily by engineers, architects, designers, and many other professionals. Today, the objects of geometry are not only shapes and solids. It deals with properties and relationships and looks much more about analysis and reasoning. Geometry drawings can be helpful when you study geometry or need to illustrate some investigation related to geometry. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to draw plane and solid geometry shapes quickly and easily.This object-role modeling (ORM) diagram sample shows schema for constituent geometry. It was designed on the base of the Wikimedia Commons file: Schema for Constituent Geometry.gif. [commons.wikimedia.org/ wiki/ File:Schema_ for_ Constituent_ Geometry.gif]

"Constituent Geometry... models a data structure for describing the geometry of individual constituents in a Particular Lithology. These descriptions are based on terms that may have qualitative or quantitative definitions (e.g. round, subround, euhedral, subhedral, fine-grained) or on free text descriptions referenced by "descID'. The Constituent Geometry description has two sub-classes, Grain Geometry and Body Geometry, because different terminology is used when describing individual grains or lithologic components in a mixed rock."

This engineering drawing shows different types of geometry of butt welds.

"Welds can be geometrically prepared in many different ways. The five basic types of weld joints are the butt joint, lap joint, corner joint, edge joint, and T-joint (a variant of this last is the cruciform joint). Other variations exist as well - for example, double-V preparation joints are characterized by the two pieces of material each tapering to a single center point at one-half their height. Single-U and double-U preparation joints are also fairly common - instead of having straight edges like the single-V and double-V preparation joints, they are curved, forming the shape of a U. Lap joints are also commonly more than two pieces thick - depending on the process used and the thickness of the material, many pieces can be welded together in a lap joint geometry." [Welding. Wikipedia]

## ERD Symbols and Meanings

Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) is a popular software engineering tool for database modeling and illustration the logical structure of databases, which uses one of two notations - Chen's or Crow’s Foot. Crow's foot notation is effective when used in software engineering, information engineering, structured systems analysis and design. Each of these notations applies its own set of ERD symbols. Crow's foot diagrams use boxes to represent entities and lines between these boxes to show relationships. Varied shapes at the ends of lines depict the cardinality of a given relationship. Chen's ERD notation is more detailed way to represent entities and relationships. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application enhanced with all-inclusive Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution allows design professional ER diagrams with Chen's or Crow’s Foot notation on your choice. It contains the full set of ready-to-use standardized ERD symbols and meanings helpful for quickly drawing, collection of predesigned ERD samples, examples and templates.

## Basic Diagramming

Mathematics is an exact science, which studies the values, spatial forms and quantitative relations. It is a science, in which is built large number of various diagrams, charts and graphs that present the material in a clear, visual and colorful form, help to analyze the information and to make certain conclusions. A diagram is a graphical representation of data using the linear segments or geometric shapes, which allows to evaluate the ratio of several values. Depending on the types of solved tasks are used the diagrams of different kinds. A graph is a diagram that shows quantitative dependencies of various processes using the curves.

## Best Program to Create a Fowchart

ConceptDraw - feature-rich flowchart software allows you create professional looking flowcharts.The vector stencils library "Optics" contains 17 symbol icons: reflecting surface; convex and concave lens with and without optic axis, body or ray; ray; parallel beam of light; point light source; prism with and without ray path; refraction.

Use these shapes for drawing schemes of physical experiments in geometrical optics and ray tracing diagrams.

"Geometrical optics, or ray optics, describes light propagation in terms of "rays". The "ray" in geometric optics is an abstraction, or "instrument", which can be used to approximately model how light will propagate. Light rays are defined to propagate in a rectilinear path as they travel in a homogeneous medium. Rays bend (and may split in two) at the interface between two dissimilar media, may curve in a medium where the refractive index changes, and may be absorbed and reflected. Geometrical optics provides rules, which may depend on the color (wavelength) of the ray, for propagating these rays through an optical system. This is a significant simplification of optics that fails to account for optical effects such as diffraction and interference. It is an excellent approximation, however, when the wavelength is very small compared with the size of structures with which the light interacts. Geometric optics can be used to describe the geometrical aspects of imaging, including optical aberrations." [Geometrical optics. Wikipedia]

## Flowchart. What is Flowchart

The Flowcharts have one or more starting and ending points. The geometric figures on the Flowcharts represent the steps of the process and are connected with arrows that show the sequence of the actions. The Flowcharts can be orientated vertically or horizontally. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful software for creating professional looking Flowcharts quick and easy. For this purpose you can use the Flowcharts solution from the Diagrams area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.## Draw Fishbone Diagram on MAC Software

The problem solving and decision-making processes are closely linked and crucial for the business and life. There are many tools and techniques for facilitating and improvement these processes, and also enhancement the quality of accepted decisions. One of them is Fisbone Diagram or Cause and Effect diagram. For its construction, you need first define the problem which you need to solve (existing or potential), write it into rectangular and draw to it a horizontal line - a “fish spine”. Then define general types of possible causes like Persons, Materials, Methods, Machinery, Measurements or Environment, and attach them to “spine”. Start brainstorming the possible reasons of failure and connect them to the branches. Professional diagramming ConceptDraw DIAGRAM MAC OSX software offers the Fishbone Diagrams solution which contains templates, samples, and ready Fishbone design objects. Use of them lets effectively identify the possible causes for an effect, realize successfully cause and effect analysis, and instantly draw Fishbone diagram on Mac software.## Preparing for a lecture mind map

The main task of any teacher, lecturer, professor is how to convey effectively the new information, to present it as simply as possible and to clarify all complex moments for the pupils, students, or other learners. Each of them always strives to make his lecture, lesson or speech interesting for the listeners which are now in auditorium. For successful achievement this task often may be needed not only the correctly chosen words, but also bright and colorful materials used in addition to the narration. The use of mind mapping technology in education and training is incredibly good choice. The Mind Maps are great opportunity to organize and structure the information, to allocate all the most important and to present it on the map in convenient, clear and easy to understand form, that allows you to keep the attention of your audience for a long time. Use professional mind mapping software ConceptDraw MINDMAP and its powerful tools to prepare the Mind Maps for your lectures, to make them colorful and bright, to add special pictures and to make visual accents on important details quick and easy.## ER Diagram Styles
