"L. Prevett, the author of our upcoming Math Teachers Guide, posted this message to the SEUL/edu mailing list:
Programming is one of the strong points for using Linux in mathematics and science education. And I personally think that programming mathematics is one of the tools that teachers can use to teach mathematics. In order to be able to write a program that will, say, solve a system of equations, a student will have to learn an awful lot about the topic of systems of equations.""Gravitational Particle Simulator (GPS) uses numerical methods to simulate a particle system that obeys the gravitational laws of motion. It has a nice user interface built with GTK+ and it uses OpenGL (Mesa) to display the particle system. (GPL) http://www.olografix.org/xenon/#gps"
"Hanzi Master ("hanzim") is a Chinese character learning-aid program I've written. It is designed to help you memorize characters by leading you to internalize their various systematicities. It displays lists of characters with the same radicals, same remaining parts, and same pronunciations, along with pinyin pronunciations and lists of compounds.
