An Irrational Ratio

Construct several circles. Find the circumference and diameter of each circle. What is the ratio of the circumference to diameter for each circle? Explain.

Can you generalize this? In other words, consider the ratio of the area of a circle with radius of length n to the area of a square with side of length n?
