T-algebra is an interactive learning environment for elementary algebra. The main program of T-algebra enables visualizing information about a particular student in tables, indicating solution times, the numbers of errors (in 20 categories) and hint usage for each task. Additional software for teachers allows examination of solution results in group views.
