```Okay here is my contribution, I had to post it on a SuperSwiki as I am still
having problems posting to the Showcase :(
You can find the project here:
http://swiki.ofset.org:8000/seaside/SBSuperSwiki/bfeb1910-c26e-4409-a2c4-5680842016a9?_s=TSJMVzFGZOHAQkcV&_k=gGeheatu

Page 3 keeps Randy's project pi (so it can be incorporated). I like Randy's
approach as a first step for kids. Using this, especially in a class where
they will all get slightly different perimeters for a four sided polygon, is
a good way to start.

Still to do (previous entry clipped):
1) add label showing length of triangle segment to facilitate calculating
perimeter
3) add Richo's graph tool to let the kids plot ratio of perimeter to
diameter vs # of side, so they can see it converge

In the spirit of the group challenge I do not mind if  anyone would like to
take on any of the above items, help is always appreciated ;)
