Figure ABCD is a square. Points A, B, C, and D are all located on the circumference of the circle. Figure ADE is an isosceles right triangle. One side measures 1 meter.

What is the area of the square? What is the area of the circle? (Use 3.14 for ∏.)

What prior knowledge/skills do students need to bring to this problem?
