  1. Turtle objects have methods and attributes. For example, a turtle has a position and when you move the turtle forward, the position changes. Think about the other methods shown in the Summary of Turtle Methods page. Which attibutes, if any, does each method relate to? Does the method change the attribute?

  1. Use for loops to make a turtle draw these regular polygons (regular means all sides the same lengths, all angles the same):

    • An equilateral triangle

    • A square

    • A hexagon (six sides)

    • An octagon (eight sides)

    # draw an equilateral triangle
    import turtle
    
    wn = turtle.Screen()
    norvig = turtle.Turtle()
    
    for i in range(3):
        norvig.forward(100)
    
        # the angle of each vertice of a regular polygon
        # is 360 divided by the number of sides
        norvig.left(360/3)
    
    wn.exitonclick()
    
    # draw a square
    import turtle
    
    wn = turtle.Screen()
    kurzweil = turtle.Turtle()
    
    for i in range(4):
        kurzweil.forward(100)
        kurzweil.left(360/4)
    
    wn.exitonclick()
    
    # draw a hexagon
    import turtle
    
    wn = turtle.Screen()
    dijkstra = turtle.Turtle()
    
    for i in range(6):
        dijkstra.forward(100)
        dijkstra.left(360/6)
    
    wn.exitonclick()
    
    # draw an octogon
    import turtle
    
    wn = turtle.Screen()
    knuth = turtle.Turtle()
    
    for i in range(8):
        knuth.forward(75)
        knuth.left(360/8)
    
    wn.exitonclick()

Write a program that prints I love Python! 15 times.
Turtle exercise:Ask the user for a side length and then draw a triangle with a turtle.
Turtle exercise: ask the user for a side length and then draw an octagon (8-sided) with a turtle.
Consider the program below which prints I love Python 10 times. To avoid hard-coding, change this program so that it asks a user for an input that specifies how many times I love Python should be printed. So if the user says 3 times, the program will print it 3 times. It should work for any input without you manually changing the code.

Write a function to compute pi to 5000 places

Q-1: After completing the reading, what concepts are still unclear to you? If nothing is unclear, what did you find most interesting?

Write a turtle program that draws the letters LLL in green. In order to get credit you must use one loop repeating the same thing three times but at a different location, one for each L.

Use split (by the empty space) and join (by the “-“) to transform the string “Once upon a time” into “Once-upon-a-time”. Print your result. Write it all in one line.

Write a turtle program that asks the user “how many sides?”. If the number of sides is even, draw two regular polygon with that many sides, one inside the other. If the number of sides is odd, draw two regular polygons with that many sides, side by side.

Use the turtle module to draw an L. The side of the L should be 100 long and the width of the L should be 75 long. The top left should start at \(x=-100\), \(y=100\).

Use the turtle module to create a turtle tuck. Use tuck to draw a box with it’s center at (\(x=0\), \(y=0\)). The width of the box should be 100 and the height of the box should be 200.

This is our shared activecode window for today’s class. We’ll be coding a DVD bouncing ball with turtles

Write code to ask the user for his/her name. Then use Turtle to draw “Hi!” or “Hello!” at random (not the quotes; make it look EXACTLY the same) followed by a PRINT OUT (not a drawing) of the name. Say t is the name of your turtle; use t.write(name) to write the name after Hi! or Hello!.

Write a program to draw some kind of picture. Be creative and experiment with the turtle methods.

10 points for creativity

10 points for using a for loop

10 points for using multiple colors

10 points for keeping picture inside of the window

10 points for using at least 4 turtle methods

Create a turtle and assign it to a variable. Print the type of your turtle and see what you get.

Write a program that prints We like Python's turtles! 100 times.

        Q-1: Reorganise the code so the turtle draws a square
from turtle import *
---
forward(50)
---
left(90)
---
forward(50)
---
left(90)
---
forward(50)
---
left(90)
---

---
left(90)
        

Write a Python program that prompts the user for the number of sides of a shape, and the length of a side. Your program should then use a Python turtle to draw a regular polygon with that many sides, each side of the given length. I have started the program for you.

Use the turtle module to create a turtle tuck. Use tuck to draw a box with it’s center at (\(x=0\), \(y=0\)). The width of the box should be 100 and the height of the box should be 200.

Use the turtle module to draw a Z in green. The top and bottom of the Z should each be 50 long and the diagonal of the Z should be 75 long.

        Q-1: Arrange the code below so that the shape shown in the image is drawn.
a cross like shape with forks on the endimport turtle
bob = turtle.Turtle()
bob.shape("turtle")
---
for row in range(4):
    bob.forward(50)

    bob.right(45)
    bob.forward(50)
    bob.backward(50)
---
    bob.left(90)
    bob.forward(50)
---
    bob.right(45) # reset heading
    bob.penup()
    bob.goto(0,0)  #return to center
---
    bob.pendown()
    bob.left(90) # turn for the next branch
---
bob.hideturtle()

a cross like shape with forks on the endimport turtle  # first get setup

Write a program that uses a for loop to print I like Python! 100 times (see Chapter 5 to see how a for loop is used). Please don’t write manually this sentence 100 times :) It will take a while. If you use a for loop, this code is only 3 lines.
