Comparing Perimeter to Area of a Square

#### 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

#### About the Lesson

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