Why Logo? Logo Links

Logo is a programming language. Logo is known for its turtle graphics and teaching procedural thinking in young minds. However, it is much more.

It is also a very effective problem-solving tool for older students. Beyond the turtle graphics, more complex and mathematically oriented procedures can be created by the student. Logo is intuitive and the mathematics student can focus on solving a problem rather than learning a programming language.

See Logo in Mathematics Education.
