Research Abstract 
We constructed a computer software system which enables us to edit the mathematical description on a computer for the problems of the mathematical technology. From the above system of the mathematical technology written on the hard disk. the fundamentals of these problems will be efficiently reconstructed. In the present basic research, we made a small scaled trial system for the elementary problems. For basic problems, it is adequate to print out the explanations which are prepared by a document edition. We practically performed it for differential and integration. In order to obtain a beautiful and acceptable output of the mathematical descriptions, we used a software named "Expressionist". The computer that was Chosen for the use of this softwere was Macbintosh Explanations consist several units containing several sentences. We labeled to fundameutal items required for the understanding of the unit. By arranging all items cited directly or indirectly for the problem one obtains a volume of the explanation. This procedure consists of two parts making the series of labels and making one volume by collecting the labeled items. When a problem involves many variations, such as differential equations, it beyonds the editorial works to teach what formula should integrated. Therefore the above mcntioned printing format method cannot be applied. In this case, we consider that conversation method be appropriate. In the present research, we used Hyper Card and its language hamed Hyper Talk. The problems should be chosen from really and practically considered problem in the many fields of sciences and technologies. In our first step, we chose the problems in basic region of physics. We comfirmed that it's possible to realize the present system for the training of the mathematical technology.
