Abstract


The purpose of the study is to determine the application of geometry in mathematics to different professions for societal transformation for the attainment of vision 20:2020. Descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. Stratified random sampling was used on a total of 6,233 professionals that form the population to select 1950 respondents from the professions which are medical, science technology, vocation, and educational professions. Two research questions and three hypotheses were tested. Questionnaire was used for data collection. Experts in the field of mathematics and the supervisor validated the instrument. The collected data was analyzed using Mean ( ), Standard Deviation (SD), t-test and One-Way Analysis of Variance. The result of the analysis revealed that application of geometry influenced all professions to a large extent. The extent of the influence as revealed by post hoc analysis using Shafer is as follows. Application of geometry influenced science technology more than the teaching profession.
