The following article describes software written for the Macintosh by Jeff Weeks. It also includes puzzlers which can be solved without the software. All of the programs are available free using anonymous ftp. See the end of the article for details.
"Explaining simple closed manifolds such as the two-torus, the Klein bottle, and three-torus becomes easier," says Jeff Weeks, "if students get a good gut-level understanding by playing games in them. The students experience the manifolds first, and only later discuss them theoretically." To this end, Weeks has written programs to allow students to get an intuition for some two- and three-dimensional manifolds. He has used the programs with high school and college students and says they make a good introduction to simple two- and three-dimensional manifolds. Here is a brief description of three of them, including some puzzlers for torus and Klein bottle chess.
