Using the name Flippin' Heritage, these are re-inventions of old learning software that is no longer available. Each is designed for mobile use and links to the original program.

 

Snooker Angles splash screen

Snooker Angles

This program was first written in 1979 by a maths teacher, Richard Millwood, for one of the first computers used in schools, the Research Machines 380Z.

It later became part of the SMILE suite of programs used in schools to learn about angles ('Flip' to see how the older version worked).

Play with it to learn about the numbers used for angles.

This 2012 version can also be used to investigate the physics of friction and restitution.

 

 


Eureka Moments - a new app developed on the same idea as the software Eureka, first published in 1982

This program was first created by the Investigations into Teaching with a Microcomputer as an Aid project (ITMA). It was designed by Hugh Burkhardt, Richard Phillips and Malcolm Swan. It was programmed by Richard Phillips for one of the first computers used in schools, the Research Machines 380Z.

It can be used to learn about graph interpretation and sketching.

The program and its accompanying guide was published by Longman in 1982. 

The 2015 version was created by Richard Millwood.
