arithmetic. The distinction between X square meters and X meters squared
is (or should be) always made clear at that early stage. It is a very
useful distinction, particularly as it gives a much better idea of
the physical extent of an area. 200 meters square is so much more
easily grasped than 40,000 square meters.
