Greetings,

Does anyone have ideas or projects for using logo in teaching
precalculus or calculus?

Thanks,
Ellen

They can do some symbolic derivation, too.

        show der [power :x 2]
[product 2 :x]

and if you have some plot function you could plot both.

        plot [product 2 :x] "x [-10 10 1]

and if you have some eval function you could compare results:

        show eval [power :x 2] "x 2
4
        show derNum [power :x 2] "x 0
0
        show eval der [power :x 2] "x 0
0

derNum would be numeric derivation.

Ah, and you can have a symbolic inversion function:

        show invert [sum :x 2]
[difference :x 2]

        show iseq 1 10
[1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10]

I'm abusing notation here:

        show eval [sum :x 2] "x iseq 1 10
[3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12]

        show eval [difference :x 2] "x [3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12]
[1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10]

        show eval [difference :x 2] "x eval [sum :x 2] "x iseq 1 10
[1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10]

What about compose:

        show compose invert [sum :x 2] [sum :x 2]
[difference sum :x 2 2]

        show eval compose invert [sum :x 2] [sum :x 2] "x [1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10]
[1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10]
