In a world where digital media is becoming a greater part of people’s everyday and working lives it is plausible to assume that the upcoming generation of pupils expect the teaching media to adapt thereafter. It is this assumption of an increased demand that Natur & Kultur is hoping to be able to meet. This thesis has been a stage in the process of producing digital material in the subject of mathematics for high school students. Specifically the aims of this thesis have been to make a rough description of the largest competitive companies’ products within the same market, explore and put together a brief theoretical foundation of contemporary research and produce concrete examples of ideas for digital applications. The most frequently used methods have been reading scientific articles regarding production of such applications and discussion with people of different professions relevant to my work. The thesis has finally resulted in a brief overview of three of the largest competitive companies’ products, a summary of theoretical relevant pedagogical material and concrete examples of application models along with concrete examples of ideas for applications suitable for production. Since my work has been a part of a much larger project and due to the fact that my ideas of applications are yet ideas and not executable programs, it has been difficult to evaluate their pedagogical effects on students. Despite that, the results have been evaluated to a certain extent through my discussions with people in possession of mathematical didactic, teaching based and pedagogical digital knowledge.
