Program Name Description
1 4-Point Star Star pattern with hole at centre
2 Radial Alternating yellow and orange radials from screen centre
with a central circle
3 Recursive Squares Full screen pattern
4 Deltoid A program based on parametric equations. Only 2
lines of trigonometry define the shapes co-ordinates
5 6-Point Spirograph Based on the Deltoid another superb pattern relying on
parametric equations
6 Lissajous Curves
7 Wool Ball Only a small amount of code is required to draw this
simple and effective graphic
8 Spiral 1 Simple spiral pattern
9 Recursive Radials Attractive pattern of different sized circles formed by
radial lines
10 Polygon A neat bit of programming that draws a standard polygon
but with all its corners linked with straight lines
11 Multi Circles An unusual pattern formed by 4 main circles with each
containing a further 7 circles decreasing in size and
having a common circumference
12 Polygon (Colour Filled) A 20-sided polygon created with the PLOT command
(85 - Triangle fill)
13 Petals (Colour Filled) Petal shapes formed from 6 circles
14 Polygon (concentric) Concentric polygon pattern starting from a pentagon
to a 34 sided polygon
