Reflection – 23, March 2017

Over the past two weeks I have given it my all. I’ve been working on two different quests, the Turtlflowers and Dizzy Turtle quests. They have both proved just as challenging as the Turtlpies, but I have made a little bit of progress. For the Dizzy Turtle I have created this shape:

It’s not quite a perfect spiral, but it is getting there. I have to figure out the exact math, because so far I have been guessing so that I have a starting point. For the Turtlflowers quest, I have created this

world.clear()

bob = Turtle(world)

bob.delay=.001

def flower(t,n):

for i in range(n):

for i in range(15):

fd(t,4)

rt(t,4)

rt(t,120)

for i in range(15):

fd(t,4)

rt(t,4)

rt(t,30)

lt(t,360/(n-2))

flower(bob,4)

as well as a few others. I haven’t gotten to a function that will create the number of petals given, but I have been using old codes, such as the code from Turtlpies in order to help with the math and the angles.

My goal from the last reflection was to complete the Dizzy Turtles quest, and I did not finish that goal. I think this was partly due to the fact that I was often switching between both Turtlepies and Dizzy Turtles, and making a little progress on both, but not finishing either.

That is why my new goal is similar to my old goal. I would like to finish one of the two quests that I am currently working on. It’s been a while since I have completed a quest, and I think it’s about time I did.

Looking towards the future, I’m not really sure what to do. I think I will continue as I have been in order to achieve a better grasp of Python before moving on to something else.
