Comparing Perimeter to Area of a Square

Published on 08/25/2011

Activity Overview

Analyze the relationship between the area and perimeter of a square.

Objectives

  • Analyze the relationship between the area and perimeter of a square
  • Graph functions to model the area and perimeter based on the length of a square
  • Graph a piecewise function to model choosing the larger number (perimeter or area) for a given length of a square and then connect the piecewise function to “if-then” statements
  • Graph functions, including piecewise functions, to fit a scatterplot
