I solved by both methods.  I'm still trying to come up with a solution not involving calculus since the category is Just Math.  (I'm assuming Shapes or Geometry might have been a better choice.)

An interesting note: the rectangle with maximum perimeter is a square.

This seems to run counter to fact that the rectangle with minimal perimeter is a square for a fixed area.
