A Short introduction to using Logo. This is the first in a twelve part series.
Can you use LOGO to create this star pattern made from squares.
Only basic LOGO knowledge needed.
Using LOGO, can you construct elegant procedures that will draw
this family of 'floor coverings'?
The interactivity enables you to look at two copies of the same
pattern and to move one in relation to the other by translating one
copy of the pattern and rotating it.
The obvious tiling properties of the pentominoes may be well
known to many of you but the following may not be.
Consider the tessellation of the 'T' shaped pentomino. Using a
duplicate of it, begin to 'overlay' the two tessellations to
produce interesting tiling effects.
Find the effect that pleases you most and try to replicate it
using LOGO commands in an elegant procedure.
Alternatively you may want to investigate:
a mixture of overlays.
