This model shows how user defined notations can be defined in terms of each other by taking the Logo environment developed by Gavin Edwards (logoEdwards2000) and the Logo parser (logoparserRoe2002) and implementing a new notation which allows users to control a clown moving around a maze trying to find treasure. The commands are simpler than Logo but use it to move the clown around the screen. There is plenty of scope to extend this language further to more complicated ideas such as solving mazes.
