I teach geometry and advanced algebra in a Massachusetts high school.  
Although my school does not run Linux in the classrooms, I use 
xeukleides, Dr. Genius, octave, gnuplot and TEX (LATEX really, with 
dvips, pdflatex and dvipdfm) to prepare materials for my students.

I hope this is useful to you even if it is not happening in school.
