Subject: Why 45 rotation?

I am looking at the lesson plan and trying to understand why under directed task #2, you rotate the figure 45 degrees. What is the purpose of that? Also you say "Extend the length and width so that they reach the dots." I don't seem to be able to do that. Am I supposed to? I like the lesson especially the way it moves from the computer to the manipulatives to abstraction. Thanks, Paul Burgmayer
