How do I make the turtle move faster or slower?
Method 1:   Use division. See Ant Hill 1.

A turtle will move more slowly if you decrease the distance it travels repeatedly. A turtle can be set to move forward by a fractional or decimal amount. On fast computers, we often need to slow a turtle's speed with division, sometimes in combination with a slider.

Method 2:   Use wait. See Animate Me 4.

A turtle will move more slowly if you increase the amount of time it waits before moving again. If we write wait speed, then a higher number makes the turtle move more slowly. We can use subtraction so that a higher number makes the turtle move more quickly.
