QGM – A SYSTEM TO IMPROVE MATHS e-LEARNING

José Casimiro Pereira, Joaquim Sousa Pinto

Abstract

The main goal of Projecto Matemática Ensino (Mathematics Teaching Project) – PmatE – is to promote the learning of mathematics. To achieve that, PmatE has been developing since 1990 an internet project especially designed to increase the interest of students in the discipline. The core of the Project anchors on the so-called “Questions Generator Model” (from the Portuguese “Modelo Gerador de Questões”). Each “model” is a tool based on parameterized expressions, which usually allows thousands of different questions to be generated (different formulations of the same “model”) formally equivalent in terms of pedagogic content. The scope of this paper is to redesign the former “model” using the IEEE LOM’s structure to define the learning object and redefine the model structure itself to allow for independence of the technological platform used to support the Project.
