# What is Isometry definition/concept/elaboration

The prefix “iso” means “equal” and the term “metrics” comes from the Greek “metron”, which means “measure”. Thus, isometry refers to a feature of geometry . However, isometric issues are also present in nature and fitness .

### In geometry

There is an isometric transformation when there is no change in shape or size of a geometric figure. So there is only one change of position in the figure. Isometry

Translation is a movement that occurs when a figure slides in a straight line in one direction. In every translation, three aspects intervene:

1) the direction (right, left, up, down…),

2) the magnitude (the specific distance covered),

3) the direction (movement in horizontal, vertical or oblique form).

From a formative point of view, isometry is present in the most relevant mathematical issues: obtaining figures, decomposition into parts or spatial dexterity . In the field of early childhood education , children need to become familiar with objects and shapes that have some type of isometry, but also with those that are asymmetric. Isometry

### In nature and in the world around us

If we cut an apple in half we will see that the two parts are symmetrically identical. The images that are projected onto the water are coincident, so there is an isometry between them. The rose windows of Gothic cathedrals, mandalas, tessellations, the structure of a flower and the wings of a mill also have this geometric singularity. In short, all these drawings with translations and movements have this characteristic.

Isometric exercise is one in which a force is applied to an object that has a certain resistance, therefore, no body movement occurs. Isometry

This type of exercise is performed to gain strength and muscle mass and is characterized by being static rather than dynamic. Pushing a wall with your arms for a few seconds or holding yourself in a position with a certain amount of force are two examples of isometric exercises.

This type of training also serves for rehabilitation, as it helps to strengthen damaged or atrophied tendons and muscle tissue.

Isometric strength training has some additional advantages: it can be done anywhere, reduces the risk of injury, and adapts to any type of athlete. However, this type of exercise should not be abused because it reduces muscle elasticity and does not favor intermuscular coordination . Isometry
