Abstract

This paper highlights the main aspects in design and development of an educational software tool that belongs to the simulators category, proposed to support teaching and learning processes in the topic of drawing conic sections in rectangular coordinates such as the hyperbola, parabola, ellipse and circumference in mathematics field. This educational simulator was designed using a multiagent system with an ontology in order to improve the application performance and the feedback to students in web learning environments. The simulator was completely developed in Java programming language under J2EE specification with the Java Server Faces framework using open source tools. In addition the pedagogical design was based on the constructivism pedagogical model and the problem based learning model in order to develop an innovative tool focused on a modern approach in education and proposing, an example of design and development of educational software in mathematics for the Web 2.0.
