About printing....

Below are several articles about printing using a computer language. The Basics cover how to print on one or several lines and how to print text and variable values. More information below.

Consider the large white rectangle to the right in the programing demo to be your printer. All printed output made by your program appears here.

    Printing location

 

In this section please understand that we are going to look at printing from a few angles.

One thing to see is what happens immediately after you print something. Does the printer stay on the same line or does it move down to the next line? That is, does the next thing that you print stay on the same line as your previous printing, or does the next thing that you print appear on the next line down from your previous printing? These behaviors show the difference between the command print and printLine.

We will also look at the difference between printing text exactly as it appears between quotes and printing the numerical value of a symbol such as a variable.

At EZ Math Movie

    The Tutorials section contains several articles about printing in the EZ Math Movie language.

EZ Math Movie is a site that can help you experiment with and understand many topics in mathematics. Its main feature is an interactive animated (x, y) graph that you control with an actual programing language. There are many examples and tutorials, and EZ Math Movie is crossed referenced with both EZ Programing Demos and Zona Land Education.

 

Zona Land Education is a site with explanations and interactive diagrams covering many topics in physics and mathematics. Zona Land Education is cross referenced with EZ Math Movie, and it contains several animations that use EZ Math Movie's programing language.
