LOGO Challenge - Sequences and Pentagrams

Stage: 3, 4 and 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3

Just to remind you that the WAIT command just slows the program down a little so you have time to see what is being printed.

Explore this how this program produces the sequences it does. What are you controlling when you change the values of the variables?

*****

Pentagrams are such innocent shapes but this challenge is not easy.

There is a lot of work that can be done away from the computer.

How about considering the pentagram as a unicursal curve (a shape you can draw in one go without taking your pencil off the paper and without going over the same line twice).

That probably helps with drawing the basic pentagram and then joining six of them together to make most of the image - but where next?

If you successfully reporduce this design you should be congratulated so don't be discouraged.
