Mathematics is widely perceived as an abstract subject to learn. However, information technology can be used as a tool for enhancing the students’ understanding of the abstract concepts behind and also arousing their interest in learning a variety of topics of mathematics. This paper reports the design and implementation of Java and Flash programs for teaching and learning elementary number theory in the Hong Kong Institute of Education. Illustrative examples with screen dumps for topics such as Greatest Common Divisors, Eratosthenes Sieve, Prime Number Distributions and the Chinese Remainder Theorem will be provided.
