- Alternatively, go to https://www.transum.org/software/Logo/. The arrow in the centre of the screen is your 'turtle'. You can type instructions called an algorithm.
- The instructions that you can choose from are:
- fd (forward) e.g. fd 10. The number shows how far forward you want the turtle to move.
- bk (backwards) e.g. bk 5.
- rt (right turn) e.g. rt 90. This will turn the turtle a quarter turn to the right. 90 degrees is a quarter turn.
- lt (left turn) e.g. lt 90. This will turn the turtle a quarter turn to the left. 90 degrees is a quarter turn.
