Does anyone know if there is any Linux/Ubuntu Math teaching programs. What I am looking for is something that starts at the basics, then pre-algebra and up. I don't mean one meant for teachers, I mean one meant for students, etc.

I would prefer a free program but I would also consider one that costs money if it is any good.

Try these that I know of, no algebra sorry:

sudo apt-get install kbruch kig kmplot kpercentage

Hope this helps a little bit. :)

Maxima and wxmaxima arent math teaching programs. They are for pretty advanced mathematical manipulation. I didnt use them until my third semester in college calculus.

You might like to look at some of the packages on the following web-site.


They are not strictly Linux but you may well find them useful. They vary in depth from reasonably basic to quite advanced. As one of the co-authors of the material, and if you find them worthwhile, I would be grateful if you would email a response to the address on the web-site. Maths is a wonderful subject once you have mastered the basics. Good luck!
