Rectangles and squares are quadrilaterals, or a polygon* with four sides. Rectangles have two sets of parallel** sides. Squares have four sides of equal length and four right angles*** for the corners. Rectangles and squares are not the same thing.

* Polygon- a closed figure with straight sides.

** Parallel- two lines, that no matter how far they stretch, will never meet each other.

*** right angles- a 90 degree angle.

No, every square is a rectange. A square must have 4 congruent sides and rectangles don't.
