The students began by considering the factors of 360, and then used this knowledge to explore the Repeat commands to create ‘Turtle Graphics’.
With this knowledge, (and a certain degree luck!), they were able to produce some awesome images.
LOGO offers a relatively simple way of introducing angles and distances to students; and they soon began to discover the fundamentals of computer programming and control
through the creation of procedures and repeated commands.
Logo is wonderful because for very little work you can achieve some great graphical feedback, in an instant.
(View as a Slideshow here, or scroll down the page to see all of the images).
We hope you like what we have done!
