Debian Junior Project
Summary
Math
Debian Jr. educational math

This metapackage will install educational math programs suitable for children. Some of the packages use mathematics that is well beyond the abilities of young children (e.g. fractals and cryptography), but hopefully using these let them gain an appreciation of the beauty of math from an early age. Other packages allow children to explore and learn math concepts in an engaging, interactive way. Some packages are more general, providing math activities as only one part of the package, e.g. bsdgames includes "arithmetic" in addition to other non-math games, and x11-apps provides xcalc.

Description

For a better overview of the project's availability as a Debian package, each head row has a color code according to this scheme:

If you discover a project which looks like a good candidate for Debian Junior to you, or if you have prepared an unofficial Debian package, please do not hesitate to send a description of that project to the Debian Junior mailing list

2048 puzzle is mathematics based puzzle game where you have to slide tiles on a grid to combine them and create a tile with the number 2048. You have to merge the similar number tiles (2n) by moving the arrow keys in four different directions. When two tiles with the same number touch, they will merge into one.

г-кефало је платформа за обуку меморијских, аритметичких и логичких способности са разним вежбама различитих нивоа тежине. Требало би да има понешто за све узрасте и намене: за децу чији родитељи би желели да она развију своје способности, за одрасле који желе да одрже свој ум у форми или желе да га испробају чисто забаве ради, за оне старије који би можда требали мало можданих активности, итд.

Обезбеђује следеће врсте игара:

  • Логичке загонетке: игре осмишљене као изазов вашим способностима размишљања и закључивања.
  • Ментални рачун: игре засноване на аритметичким операцијама које су осмишљене за испробавање ваших способности менталног рачуна.
  • Меморијске вежбе: игре за доказивање ваше краткорочне меморије.
  • Вербалне аналогије: игре изазова за ваше вербалне способности.

GCompris is a high quality educational software suite, including a large number of activities for children aged 2 to 10. Some of the activities are game orientated, but nonetheless still educational.

This is a transitional package that depends on the new series of GCompris releases (rewritten using Qt). It can be safely removed once gcompris-qt is installed.

Numpty Physics is a drawing puzzle game in the spirit (and style?) of Crayon Physics using the same excellent Box2D engine. It melds cute schoolbook-style graphics with a kind of realistic physics engine.

It includes a built-in editor so that you may build (and submit) your own levels.

XaoS allows you to zoom and pan around a fractal in real time. It can display the animated fractals in graphical or even plain text mode.

It displays the Mandelbrot set or many other fractals and allows you to zoom smoothly into the fractal. Various coloring modes are provided for both the points inside and outside the selected set. In addition, switching between Mandelbrot and Julia fractal types is provided.

Other features include autopilot mode, palette changing, image saving, fractal inversion, filters, and a built in fractal tutorial.
