There is a need for review in mathematical education to satisfy a growing demand for graduates that can support research and development in many technical fields. Dissatisfaction with current curriculum has pushed many institutions and countries to review their programs and their teaching methods. Due to the availability of technology, many are looking at its use to improve mathematics teaching. At the same time there is few support from the existing software methodologies for educational software. In this paper we describe a framework for developing educational software. The first prototype of the framework is presented together with Disc-Maths, a web-based software which is used to validate the proposed framework. Disc-Maths aims at introducing the learning of discrete mathematics at an early age.
