It is a proven psychological fact that every student has his own different way of learning. Therefore, effective teaching should be student specific, not a general one. Our aim is to design a computer-based, adaptive learning system that assesses a child’s understanding of a given problem and guides most effectively to correctly understand the problem and the related concept in turn. As a case study, problems of elementary geometry of primary school level are considered. The system would allow a student to follow a learning path that is based on his ability of understanding and the pace he is comfortable with. It would help improve the confidence and skill of the child in geometry by presenting geometrical figures of increasing difficulty level.
