Abstract : The main thrust of this thesis is the design of a usable Intelligent Computer Aided Instruction (ICAI) user interface that does not use a natural language processor and runs on a personal computer. Discrete Mathematics is the knowledge domain for this project and the Discrete Math Tutor (DMT) is the name of the tutoring system. The DMT will allow the average student to benefit from a tutoring system now and not have to wait until the artificial intelligence researchers solve the natural language interface problem.
