Description:

This interactive Java applet allows users to explore the relationship between area and perimeter of both rectangles and irregular shapes.

The activity allows users to explore the relationship between shapes with a fixed perimeter and variable area or shapes with a a fixed area and variable perimeter. An optional scoring feature allows users to keep track of the number correct.
