    perimeter: This is the sum of all the sides of an object like a fenced in yard

    parameter: This is a value that you send to a computer program or a mathematical equation. Example: Notepad.exe c:\somefile.txt

    Notepad.exe is a program in Windows to open text files
    c:\somefile.txt is a parameter you are providing to the program
