The number of square units it takes to completely fill a square.

Formula: Width × Height

Formula: Width × Height

Try this Drag the orange dots to move and resize the square. As the size of the square
changes, the area is recalculated.

In strictly correct mathematical wording the formula above should be spoken as "s raised to the power of 2", meaning s is multiplied by itself. But we usually say it as "s squared". This wording actually comes from the square. The length of a line s multiplied by itself, creates the square of side s. Hence "s squared".

ENTER ANY ONE VALUE | ||

Side | clear | |

Perimeter | clear | |

Area | clear | |

Diagonal | clear | |

Use the calculator above to calculate the properties of a square.

Enter any one value and the other three will be calculated. For example, enter the side length and the area will be calculated.

Similarly, if you enter the area, the side length needed to get that area will be calculated.

- In the figure above, click on "hide details"
- Drag the orange dots on the vertices to make a random-size square.
- Now try to estimate the area of the square just looking at the small unit squares inside it
