You first learned about perimeter and area when you were in grade school. In this tutorial, we will revisit those ideas with a more mathy lens. We will use our prior knowledge of congruence to really start to prove some neat (and useful) results (including some that will be useful in our study of similarity).
Circles are everywhere. How can we measure how big they are? Well, we could think about the distance around the circle (circumference). Another option would be to think about how much space it takes up on our paper (area). Have fun!
Named after Helge von Koch, the Koch snowflake is one of the first fractals to be discovered. It is created by adding smaller and smaller equilateral bumps to an existing equilateral triangle. Quite amazingly, it produces a figure of infinite perimeter and finite area!
