The 'hatred towards mathematics' is a topic that has been established as a stigma of our subject throughout the time and by means of the different forms of communication in our society. In our task as teachers, minimising this constitutes an important goal. We want to make the different mathematical aspects known to the general public by making their understanding accessible. Our interest is to approach mathematics to people, both inside and outside the classrooms. This article talks about how we try to popularise an aspect of mathematics which is in permanent contact with us, geometry, through a project called 'Mathematic Command'. (Authors' abstract)
