  1. Can we change the 2nd question to read, “Order the non-square rectangles from tallest to shortest?” As a high school Geometry teacher, this is a big pet peeve. Students come to me and literally do not believe me when I tell them that squares are rectangles, and parallelograms, and trapezoids, and rhombuses. When we are not precise with students early on, misconceptions become ingrained making them really hard to fix!
