The MSc Thesis presented deals with elementary mathematics learning creating Student and Teacher models with interactive elements and adaptive learning. Moreover the application promotes collaborative learning through which students work together discussing about solving exercises leading to socialization, increase cooperativeness and teamwork. The application is web based, so it's accessible from any computer regardless it's operating system. To be able to view it the user only needs a browser, so the system requirements are minimal, and can occur in any device even in mobile media. The program can handle the basic mathematical operations and by reading the theory and taking tests the student is evaluated through the learning process. Theory and tests are presented to the student based on student's learning level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and the type of learning (visual, auditory, kinesthetic). So the student starts the application in the level of mathematics that suits him and depending on his progress, the program can rank him to another level presenting the corresponding courses. The program is adjusted according to the student's progress and gives advice if the student needs to give greater weight to any particular act in accordance with learning needs. In addition, the application proposes student the collaboration with other students through personal messages to help him solve the exercises. The performance of all students is stored on a database from which the program extracts elements that help in modeling users and offering adaptive behavior. The theory and the corresponding exercises can easily be introduced by the teacher through a special form adding dynamically as many exercises the teacher wants. Also the teacher is able to monitor student progress, as the system records students' scores in all tests and presents charts showing students' progress.
