LOGO Teaching Sequences on Numbers and Functions and Equations. Teacher's Text and Problems.
Grant, Richard; And Others
The teacher's texts for two teaching sequences in the LOGO mathematics course are presented in this second volume of a four-volume report. The material presented here is designed to be a broad overview of the application of LOGO to the topics of numbers and functions. A variety of alternative paths and approaches are presented; in each case the emphasis is on crucial points and on possible pitfalls and difficulties. The sequence on numbers is not meant to accompany a first exposure to the subject, but rather, a careful retracing of steps. The level of presentation in this unit is extremely detailed, and the reader is encouraged, on first reading, to skip around as his interests dictate. The sequence on functions is written more freely. The idea of function as a black-box is here concretely realized as are many other aspects of the set-theoretic approach to functions which otherwise trouble students by their "vagueness." For Volumes I, III, and IV of the report see EM 009 419, EM 009 421, and EM 009 422. (Author/JY)
