Cinderella.2, an interactive geometry software program, has just been released. Besides extensions to the geometry part of the software, the integrated physics simulation engine is particularly interesting for classroom use in mathematics and science education. Furthermore, an API allows for even more customized virtual experiments. The solid mathematical foundation of Cinderella.2 makes it suitable software not only for K-12 education, but also in university teaching and research.
Cinderella has been developed by Prof. Dr. Jürgen Richter-Gebert (Technical University, Munich) and Prof. Dr. Ulrich Kortenkamp (University of Education, Schwäbisch Gmünd).
More information about Cinderella.2, as well as a demo version, are available at the web site. Order before July 1st and get 10% off the regular price. Currently, Cinderella.2 is a download product only. A book version including a CD-ROM to be published by Springer-Verlag is in preparation.
Respond to Ulrich Kortenkamp's recent post announcing the release of Cinderella.2.
