Square Geometry

A square is a four sided shape with four equal sides and four right angles.

A square has some important dimensions: the length of each side. It has a perimeter, which is the length around the outside of the square. It also has an area, which is the amount of space contained by a square.

This widget allows you to find the length of the side, perimeter and area of a square.
