Hmm. What circumscribes can be inscribed too... Think of the inscribed square problem.

A Simple Answer: Start with any square and draw any Jordan curve within the square that touches the boundary of the square at least two points.
Solving the inscribed square problem is much more difficult.
Guest wrote:Our three hints for solving the inscribed square problem along with some basic calculus (first derivatives/tangents of piecewise smooth curves of the Jordan curve) and some basic analytic geometry are almost enough to solve the inscribed square problem.
And the ideas of contours, open cover (basic topology), and neighborhood (basic topology) are useful too.
To clinch the solution to the inscribed square problem, we need to introduce the idea of convergence/limit (basic calculus) with simple probability theory.

Important hint for solving the inscribed square problem:
The circumscribed square by design (the shape of the square) generates/induces inscribed squares within the inscribed Jordan curve. Go figure!

"In addition, we have the following system of differential equations:
dy0(x0)/dx = dyn(x0)/dx;
dy0(x1)/dx = dy1(x1)/dx;
dy1(x2)/dx = dy2(x2)/dx;
dy2(x3)/dx = dy3(x3)/dx;
...
dyn-1(xn)/dx = dyn(xn)/dx. "
Remark: The left side of each of the above equations may not equal to the corresponding right side of those equations.

An Update:
We also include the appropriate (relative to our inscribed Jordan curve) horizon and vertical translations of our circumscribed square.

[b]An Update[/b]:
Our square lattice acts as a dynamic fractal that adjusts its scale and orientation so that one or more of its cells are inscribed by any Jordan curve. Go figure!
