|[8:00 AM] Math Modeling Application Updated
Pedagoguery Software has updated their educational math application, Poly, to version 1.06. Poly allows users to explore 3D models to get a feel for structure and shape. The new version adds more models, and a print preview mode. According to Pedagoguery:
Changes since the previous version:
- A Traditional Chinese, a Simplified Chinese, and a Danish interface is now available (in addition to the already available English, Spanish , French, and Korean interfaces).
- Two Geofix display modes are now available. The modes display the polyhedra as though they were made from Geofix pieces (small flexible polycarbonate polygons which snap together to form polyhedra - see <http://www.geoaustralia.com)>.
- A "print preview" menu item replaces the "monitor" and "printer" view modes.
Poly is a math application for interactively exploring, on your mac, three dimensional polyhedra. Polyhedra may be flattened into a "net" and printed out, cut, folded, and taped together to make paper models.
Poly is available for US$28. You can find more information at the Pedagoguery Software web site.
