We describe and evaluate an educational software tool called Educational Active SYstem for Numerical Methods (EASyNuM) which provides teaching support for undergraduate courses of numerical methods. We show our teaching experience results using several tests on a group of students in order to obtain evidence of the advantages of using this tool. Tests results suggest that, using the system, students understand better some of the concepts. We also show students’ opinion through their answers to some questions related to their experience with the system.
