This paper presents some aspects in our research in the design of an ITS for teaching elementary mathematics concepts, such as the addition operation, as a learning tool for children with Down´s Syndrome.
This paper examines key issues involving the interaction, design and usability of a digital whiteboard interface to support Down syndrome (DS) students in their learning of addition and subtraction algorithms. The research goals include (a) to identify the main interaction difficulties present when executing addition and subtraction operations and (b) to… (More)
EMATIC project (Mathematics Education through ICT) is a multi-device Intelligent Tutorial System (ITS) focused on the teaching of mathematics, especially for children with educational difficulties. Logical thinking and learning different aspects of basic math are the main learning goals of EMATIC. Also, EMATIC allows students to perform non-repetitively the… (More)
The goal of this paper is to present a Fuzzy Instructional Planner belonging to an Intelligent Tutorial System (ITS) which has been designed as a tool for the reinforcement of the addition operation. We have modeled the uncertainty in the student's knowledge and the teaching strategy by using principles from a rigorous fuzzy logic methodology.
