Logo was definitely cool and persists in many forms.

Rocky's Boots was one of my favorite logic games for the Apple 2 / 2e.

If you're talking contemporary for-schools software, Geogebra is of course
currently a pack leader.

http://www.geogebra.org/cms/en/

The software I've used a lot: POV-Ray + Python, is not as accessible minus
more background and training.

Sources (both are free and qualify as open source, though under different
licenses):

povray.org

python.org

The extra workout required is worth the results in my reckoning.

You get a deeper appreciation for a lot of stuff using my approach, if
you'll forgive some flagrant self promotion.

See:

http://www.4dsolutions.net/ocn/numeracy0.html

and pages following, for a gentle intro / prototype view of this particular
synergy.

Yes, I'm using a dated version of Python.

Future curriculum writers will branch off and draw inspiration from my
earlier versions, more than copy verbatim.
