Programming-Languages as a Conceptual Framework for Teaching Mathematics.
Feurzeig, Wallace; And Others
LOGO is a programming language developed at Bolt, Beranek and Newman, Inc., specifically for use in teaching. It provides the student with a set of numerical and symbolic primitives as elements for gradually building extended, complex program structures. The building of these structures is facilitated by a procedure-oriented programming heuristic and by recursive programming. To demonstrate the special benefits made possible through the use of LOGO by students, complex program structures are developed in a careful, systematic manner. Volume 1 contains a LOGO reference manual and two teaching sequences, including a short introductory sequence on teletype geometry. Volume 2 has two teaching sequences on the representation of numbers and the algorithms of arithmetic, and on functions and equations. Volume 3 contains two teaching sequences on problem-solving. Volume 4 is a detailed description of LOGO processor algorithms designed to guide the systems programmer. (JM)
