Might be instructional to use etoys for that, along the lines of


Use the screen as your plotting area. Position a morph to the x,y
coordinate and let it "stamp" itself for every point. This is not so
easy when you want to plot some pre-computed list, or when it's hard
to translate values to pixels. But when you can plot points as soon as
the values are created, it's nice and very direct.
