No, not test tubes either. Should I give you some sort of hint?

Yes, it is, at least in school. I think most real scientists can do without one.

(Also, I'm getting a bit worried now: After looking the object in question up on the English Wikipedia, I learned that it was invented in Germany and may not be in much use outside of Europe. So we'll see if anyone can guess it... Huh )

Guess so. Hurra for me... I guess Wink

The object was a set square (Geodreieck in German) like this one:

I had mine still sitting on my desk from math homework that day, which is why I picked it. Now, I'm curious: Are you familiar with this object?
