What is Logo? 

Logo is a special hands-on, minds-on way of interacting with a computer. For excellent information about the Logo language, refer to The Logo Foundation or read our handout from the January 1998 St. Louis NCTM Regional Convention.  

Who is the Turtle Family? 

We are Charles, Denice, Flynn and Teagan Smith. All four of us use and love Logo in one way or another. Charles and Denice are teachers and use Logo in their classes. Teagan and Flynn are students who use Logo as a learning tool. Teagan and Flynn also assist in Logo Presentations done by the family.  

Previous Presentations Done by the Turtle Family:

Missouri Math/Science Interface 1994, 1995, and 1996  

NCTM Regional Meeting at Kansas City, 1996  

NCTM Regional Meeting at St. Louis, 1998 (handout from that meeting is available here.) 
The presentation at the St. Louis meeting consisted of a four hour hands-on workshop on the use of Logo in Middle School and Intermediate School classrooms. The teachers at the session represented schools from Michigan to Florida. A polygons worksheet from that workshop is available here.
