Description/Abstract

This review suggests that students working with Logo, by creating and interacting with objects that are visible, quantifiable, and adhere to conventional mathematics, build connections between spatial and numeric/algebraic thinking. Using Logo can help students make mathematics more concrete, while simultaneously supporting algebraic formalisation of actions as Logo “procedures". Working with Logo affords students opportunities to try out ideas and modify plans, elements that are key to mathematical problem solving. Students can make and test conjectures, a vital component of mathematical reasoning.
