GSL shell offers an interactive user interface that gives access to the GSL collection of mathematical functions. It is based on the powerful and elegant scripting language Lua. GSL shell is not just a wrapper over the C API of GSL, but offers a much more simple and expressive way to use GSL. The objective is to give the user the power to easily access GSL functions without having to write a complete C application. It also has a powerful module to produce plots or almost any kind of graphics based on data or functions.
Dr. Geo is an interactive geometry program that is distributed as a universal portable application. It allows one to create a geometric sketch and manipulate it according to its constraints. It is usable at home or at school, in primary or secondary education. It is simple and effective with extended features including scripting and programming.
QMentat helps you practice mental arithmetic. It uses arbitrary-length fixed point arithmetic, and can handle any size numbers, only limited by the size of your screen (and in the case of division with an integer result, the speed at which the number can be factored). It is also quite configurable, allowing you to tailor the questions to your needs.
Groups, Algorithms, and Programming (GAP) is a system for computational discrete algebra with particular emphasis on computational group theory and related areas. It provides a Pascal-like interpreted language, data types for many algebraic objects, a function library, and large libraries of data.
AbulEdu Calcul Mental is a software tool that trains children in mental calculation as stipulated by the French Ministry of Education for primary schools. Activities include addition, subtraction, multiplication of integers, addition tables (+2 to +9), times tables (x2 to x9), additional additives (to 10, to 100, to 1000), multiples (of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 50), and orders of magnitude (with additions, subtractions, and multiplications). There is also an editor and selective launcher.
Vocab Builder is a collection of two separate programs. The client is the testing application that uses a drill-style method of building your vocabulary in a foreign language, similar to using flash-cards. The editor allows you to create a new, or modify an existing, database for your own personal use. Since the design of the project allows a user to create their own databases/tests, they can not only focus on the words they want/need to learn, but also are not restricted by availability of choice. No more are you restricted by only the databases available to you. Many language teaching applications only allow you to learn the languages they've supplied you. Most North American-based programs cater to English speaking users and only give you a selection of other languages to choose from. Not only can Vocab Builder use any language combination of Native and Secondary languages but it's also open-ended. You can share your tests with others. You can expand the database of words in any direction you want. Word lists are meant to be broken down into categories like colors, sizes, numbers, etc.
BALLView is an extensible viewer for bio-molecular structures. It provides all standard models and offers rich functionality for molecular modeling and simulation, including molecular mechanics methods (AMBER, CHARMM, and MMFF94 force fields), continuum electrostatics methods employing a Finite-Difference Poisson Boltzmann solver, secondary structure calculation, molecular editing and docking. Since BALLView is based on BALL (the Biochemical ALgorithms Library), it is easily extensible on the level of C++ code. In addition, it provides a Python interface with Integrated Development Environment features to allow interactive rapid prototyping.
Python Mesh Viewer is a very basic tool to display and play with 3D models. You can either construct them in the code (by defining points, triangles, and quads) or load them from a file. Currently, the only file format supported is the ".mesh" format from the closed source software medit. The rendering is done with absolutely no hardware acceleration (no OpenGL).
