Some results of educational experiments conducted as a part of long-term research project are described in this paper. Primary goal of the research was to improve the quality and flexibility of mathematical education by implementing of new teaching model with ICT support. The model was designed with an aim to increase flexibility and quality of teaching mathematical subjects at the Faculty of Materials Science and Technology of Slovak University of Technology. Described experiments were oriented onto verifying the proposed teaching model.
