Aetherspace Heckert gnu.small.png
'Aetherspace' is a project to produce multiplayer game that blends several different game genres. It is being developed by gamers as a way to learn programming. These games are currently under development and, while fun to look at, are not considered playable yet.

Dr genius
Dr. Genius Refers to Geometric Exploration and Numeric Intuitive User System. It is a merge of two projects: Dr. Geo and the Genius calculator. The Genius Calculator is a multiple precision calculator with an interpreted language, GEL, plus a large mathematical library written in GEL. Dr. Geo is a vector drawing software with mathematical constraints- we call this "interactive geometry." This project was a GNU package. It has since been decommissioned and is no longer developed.

Dr. geo Heckert gnu.small.png
Dr. Geo, a libre software to design & manipulate interactive geometric sketches with constraints.

Dr. Geo aim is to be an open, easy to study, modify and extend interactive geometry software. It is distributed with its source code you can modify while using it. Ten years old kids use Dr. Geo to explore Euclidean geometric sketch, agile kids extend and program it with its embedded dynamic Smalltalk language and user interface.

Just like other interactive geometry software such as Cabri, Cinderella, Geogebra, Carmetal, with Dr. Geo the user creates a geometric sketch and manipulates it according to its constraints. What sets Dr.Geo apart from the other geometry software is the possibility of studying and even modifying/extending its source code while s/he is using it to create a figure.

All in all, its philosophy is also to empower the user with direct access to the Dr. Geo arcane and programming. For example, with script, one can build a geometric sketch to compute the slope at an arbitrary location of a given curve. Or the user can describe a recursive curve with Smalltalk programmed sketch.

It is distributed as an universal portable application: you can install it in a usb stick and run it anywhere: Dr. Geo is Modify-me Ready! But don't be afraid, if you only want to design interactive sketch, Dr. Geo is intuitive and easy to use.

It is also tablet ready for both Android and iPad.

DrPython
DrPython is a highly customizable, simple, and clean editing environment for developing Python programs. It is intended primarily for use in schools, and is a tribute to DrScheme.

FET
FET is free software (using heuristic algorithms) for automatically generating the timetable of a school, high-school or university.

FroZenLight
FroZenLight connects simple line art and mathematics. The source of light can be positioned so that either symmetric reflection patterns or secret messages (Cryptography) are created. Dozens of example light patterns and some math exercises are provided.

GenChemLab
'GenChemLab' is an OpenGL-based application intended to simulate several common general chemistry laboratory exercises. It is meant to be used to help students prepare for actual lab experience. Supported experiments include titration, calorimetry, freezing point depression, vapor pressure, electrochemistry, and spectrophotometry.

Gretools
Gretools is a vocabulary building tool for GNOME. It is a fun and efficient way to learn words. It uses a modified version of the word list at http://pllab.kaist.ac.kr/~gladius/gre/, which has about 4000 words. Gretools consists of a synonym quiz and a word guessing game. It also allows you to look up words. It automatically remembers the words that gave you difficulty, and lets you revise them. You can set a filter to restrict the space of words used for practice. It is particularly useful for preparing for word tests.

Ignuit Heckert gnu.small.png
Ignuit is a memorization aid based on the Leitner flashcard system. It has a GNOME look and feel, a good selection of quiz options, and supports UTF-8. Cards can include embedded audio, images, and mathematical formulae (via LaTeX). It can import and export several file formats, including CSV. Ignuit can be used for both long-term learning and cramming.

KLearningAid
'KLearningAid' pops up kvtml file items on the desktop. Using KWordQuiz or FlashKard, produce kvtml files and load them into Klaid. It will grab all complete n x m related items (e.g. "Question" and "Answer", or "Word A" and "Word B") and display them periodically as PopUps on the your desktop. It is like someone is sitting behind you making sure you know all the terms for your next exam or test while surfing the web, coding, or whatever.
