Teaching Math with Scratch, MIT's Iconic Programming Language
These attached documents are GEOSS activities, created to use open source software to teach to mathematics GEs. The activities were initially Logo activities. These were field tested. The activities have been adapted to use Scratch instead of Logo. The Scratch adaptations have not been field tested.
Scratch is available as a free download at the MIT website:
Geometry From Scratch is a classic activity that is normally done using Logo to draw and rotate a square. What's the Point has students use Cartesian Coordinates to draw shapes. Exploring Polygons From Scratch is an adaptation of the Logo program, Poly, that will draw any regular polygon.
