Animation in Logo: A Reinforcement Activity.
McCoy, Leah P.; Kreiger, Lisa W.
This reinforcement activity has been used by students from the elementary school level to the graduate school level who possess intermediate level ability in programming Logo. The activity, which consists of writing Logo programs that animate an object, can have several positive effects as it: (1) helps develop problem-solving skills; (2) encourages students to work together and share ideas; (3) can motivate accelerated students; and (4) offers excellent practice in use of variables, procedures, conditionals, and iteration/recursion. While the six sample procedures included for animated Logo are written for LogoWriter, they can be easily adapted to other versions of Logo. (CGD)
