There is not a lot to this applet.  It allows users to rotate about a fixed
point and to manipulate the length of the sides.  

The applet also calculates the area and perimeter of the created figure.  

Students using this tool must have some background in area and perimeter
calculation because that information is not provided.  I really don't see how
irrational numbers are intuitively used in this applet.
