Geomview is interactive geometry software which is particularly appropriate for mathematics research and education. In particular, geomview can display things in hyperbolic and spherical space as well as Euclidean space.

Geomview allows multiple independently controllable objects and cameras. It provides interactive control for motion, appearances (including lighting, shading, and materials), picking on an object, edge or vertex level, snapshots in SGI image file or Renderman RIB format, and adding or deleting objects is provided through direct mouse manipulation, control panels, and keyboard shortcuts. External programs can drive desired aspects of the viewer (such as continually loading changing geometry or controlling the motion of certain objects) while allowing interactive control of everything else.

Qliss3d is a tool that generates various Lissajous figures. It is possible to rotate the figures and zoom into them. Also changing the frequency and replay of the sinus sounds by the same frequency rate are implemented.

In mathematics, a Lissajous curve (Lissajous figure or Bowditch curve) is the graph of the system of parametric equations which describes complex harmonic motion. This family of curves was investigated by Nathaniel Bowditch in 1815, and later in more detail by Jules Antoine Lissajous. Lissajous curves can be traced mechanically by means of a harmonograph.

Yacas is a small and highly flexible computer algebra language.

The syntax is very close to Mathematica. The distribution contains a small library of mathematical functions, but its real strength is in the language in which you can easily write your own symbolic manipulation algorithms. It supports arbitrary precision arithmetic.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: texmacs

Geonext
dynamic mathematics software
License: GPL
Debian package not available

The dynamic mathematics software geonext establishes new ways of teaching and learning mathematics. It offers opportunities of visualisation that can't be realised on paper or blackboard and with traditional construction tools.

Geonext enables autonomous and cooperative learning of mathematics in the classroom. It encourages an active discovering approach to mathematical thinking. Geonext can be used at school and at home for free. Therefore the software can be handed out to students without any copyright problems.

Geonext can be used from elementary school up to calculus at high school and in teacher-training at university in a manifold and flexible way. On the one hand it is possible to run geonext as a stand-alone program on the other hand it can be embedded in HTML-based learning environments.

Using geonext as a stand-alone program it acts as a tool for creating geometric constructions with a various number of construction tools. Compared to paper based geonext constructions constructions can be changed and varied dynamically afterwards.
