Bob, are you familiar with the computer language LOGO? I'm interested in its use in geometry teaching not so much for sophisticated programming but in giving students another vehicle for applying their geometry learning. For instance, if I have the 'turtle' travel 100 pixels, make a 90 degree turn to the right and then travel 50 pixels, how many degrees does it then have to turn and how many pixels will it need to travel to get back to the starting point?
