The LOGO programming language is a very user-friendly way for children to develop concepts in both mathematics and in programming. It provides an environment where children can deepen their understanding of both number and geometry and encourages the development of problem solving skills and the use of algorithms.
The guide explains how children can use built-in procedures and functions and also how to write their own procedures and functions (the building blocks of programming). This develops into writing more complex programs comprising several procedures or functions. The documents provided here introduce the major ideas you will need for the classroom and explains them clearly and accessibly for both learner and teacher.
