MetadataShow full item record
The computer language Logo facilitates the teaching of analytic geometry and calculus from the notion of curvature, through its turtle geometry facility. The author provides some theoretical basis for finding turtle geometry equivalents of familiar curves in analytic geometry, and vice versa, by some simple methods apparently previously unnoticed. In particular, he studied turtle geometry programs where the curvature of a line is a trigonometric function of its orientation. (Author)

Some links between turtle geometry and analytic geometry / International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 1985 Rowe, Neil C. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1985);The computer language Logo facilitates the teaching of analytic geometry and calculus from the notion of curvature, through its "turtle geometry" facility. We provide some theoretical basis for finding turtle geometry ...
Wilmer, Archie (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2003-06);The subject of this research is the buckling behavior of a simply supported rectangular plate, with a bulb-flat stiffener attached to one side of the plate. The plate structure is subjected to axial compression that increases ...
Kirkpatrick, Gary W. (Monterey California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1999-06);The deleterious effects of fretting on the fatigue properties of a material have been known since the work of Warlow-Davies in 1941. However, a widely accepted fretting fatigue life prediction method still does not exist ...
