Since a circle is round one needs (MUST!) to explain how this can be to students. Personally, if the area is 10 sq inches, I tell students that if you cut the circle the correct way you can piece together exactly ten-square inch pieces with nothing left over. Of course I include a diagram with the explanation.

I was wondering how some of you explain this and/or think about there.
