Description:

In this lesson, students measure the sides of many squares and their diagonals, then consider the ratio of diagonal length to side length. They can note that in all cases the ratio hovers near 1.4 or the square root of 2. The very complete lesson plan contains handouts, questions for discussion, and problems for applying the new learning.
