Misconceptions Concerning Rotation and Angle in LOGO.
Cope, P.; And Others
Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, v8 n1 p16-24 Mar 1992
Describes attempts to instruct 12 children, aged between 10 and 11, during a 12-hour course in LOGO that proper attention should be paid to the external angles through which the turtle rotated. Results suggest that using LOGO to draw closed figures may lead to confusions about angle that are not amenable to conventional intervention techniques during short courses. (JJK)
