Exploring High School Mathematics with Logo.
Battista, Michael
Having students draw and investigate geometric shapes in a Logo environment is advocated as an excellent way to have them constructively learn geometric concepts. This document illustrates the potential of Logo for getting high school students involved in mathematical explorations by presenting a sequence of seven activities. The activities concern: drawing geometric figures with the Logo turtle, drawing more complicted figures, exploring regular polygons, investigating rotational symmetry, investigating regular star polygons, discovering methods for drawing circles with the turtle, and using Logo to explore coordinate geometry and the Pythagorean Theorem.
