    Geometry is the measure of shapes or earth as the greeks put it   geo=earth   metry=Measure

    Trigonometry is the specific study and measurement of triangles
    trigon=triangle    metry=measure

    Geometry is the study of shapes, angles, lines, and dimensional construction.  It can also involve proofs and logic.

    Trigonometry is specifically the study of triangles and the relationships between their sides and angles.  Trigonometric functions also play a critical role in calculus, but at their root they are still regarding relationships to triangle angle and side measures.
