This paper describes the system MATHEMA. The MATHEMA supports the senior high school students or novices of higher education, in learning electromagnetism individually and/or collaboratively, and overcoming their possible misconceptions and learning difficulties. The MATHEMA generates courses according to students’ learning goal, knowledge level on each main concept, knowledge level on each learning goal, learning style, abstract or concrete dimension of learning style, preference for visual and/or verbal feedback, preference for the kind of navigation. The MATHEMA also supports the following adaptive and intelligent techniques: curriculum sequencing, adaptive presentation, adaptive and meta-adaptive navigation support, interactive problem solving support, and adaptive group formation and peer help. An experimental study with senior high school students indicated that they improve their performances when studying through the MATHEMA.
