Web-based Mathematics Education (WME) provides new and promising way to use the Web to improve mathematics education. However, WME lessons still require substantial programming skills to create and modify. Mathematics Lessons Authoring System (MLAS) enables teachers, who might not have the required programming know-how, to create and customize Web-based mathematics lessons. MLAS is an on-Web lesson authoring system features cutting-edge web technologies and standards forming simple, yet powerful, graphical user interface. Dynamic lessons can be generated with little effort and time by using lesson templates. When authoring a lesson, a teacher may include one or more interactive virtual manipulatives from MLAS. The manipulatives can be customized and can interact with one another or questions and comments in the lesson page. MLAS offers a growing library of virtual manipulatives that are fully customizable, editable, and reusable. The MLAS library is easily expandable by adding new manipulatives contributed by teachers and other experts.
