LOGO Challenge - Recollection

Several procedures to think about but there are several things you can do to help yourself such as breaking the procedures down stepwise (rather than into smaller peices) What does the first line do? And the second?...

LOGO Challenge - Blob

Working with recursion. What is going on how does each iteration feen into the next? All within a geometric setting.

LOGO Challenge - Trees

Stage: 4 and 5 Challenge Level:
Here are some procedures that might prove helpful:

Alter the parameter :T within BRAN3 and BRAN4 as you think fit.

TO BRAN3 :T
IF 20 > :T [STOP]
FD :T
RT 15
BRAN3 :T - 25
LT 30
BRAN3 :T - 10
RT 15
BK :T
END

Start with BRAN3 140 and explore from there!

TO BRAN4 :T
IF 30 > :T [STOP]
FD :T
RT 30
BRAN4 :T * (.6 + .02 * RANDOM 10)
LT 60
BRAN4 :T * (.6 + .02 * RANDOM 10)
RT 30
BK :T
END

Try BRAN4 180 and explore from there!
