Abstract

NEWLOGO (NEWtonian LOGO) is a special-purpose, LOGO-like programming language for simulating motion with and without inertia, gravitation and friction. Its effect on student performance and understanding has been assessed by using a dynamics test that we developed, together with interviews and observation of NEWLOGO use.

The notion of ‘misconceptions’ in the area of dynamics is discussed, and related to the literature.
