This article I about how shapes can be found in all aspects of life but formally in mathematics. In this experiment they intended to find out how shapes in algebra are perceived compared to real life objects. The process the experimenters used was to take a few classes in a university and determine how the students used their cognitive thinking to determine what in the world the shape can be compared to. There is one part of the experiment where the objects were compared to a sheep. The experiment showed that through Gestalt psychology, our present world can be compared to our thought world and brought out in whatever form we see fit.
