Connecting Mathematics through Rectangles & Squares

Summary

There is too much mathematics linked to rectangles and squares to explore it all in one session, but at least we will find our way from rectangles to squares ... to square numbers ... to square roots without a calculator ... to area of circle without pi. On that pathway we should be able to take in long multiplication and a bit of algebra. The expectation is that there will be something new and intriguing for everyone. If time is available we can point the way to other related topics such as patterns and Pythagoras.
