Attached is a variation of the "follow the line" problem. It is "follow the
border of any shape".
I prefer this for the students because the coding is less verbose and more
intuitive. Using sliders puts the student in an experimental position - a
more constructivist approach. Creating two turtles to perform shows how over
the long term each turtle performs identically.
I prefer not to aim for perfectly stable turtle movements because the coding
tends to become more complex. The aim is really to get the students to think
and problem solve - at an appropriate level. The students (and I) love to
see crazy things happen when one changes parameters.
