The introduction of laptops in the teaching of mathematics and science in English under the Teaching and Learning of Science and Mathematics in English Programme (Pengajaran dan
Pembelajaran Sains dan Matematik dalam Bahasa Inggeris, PPSMI) has been implemented by the Ministry of Education since 2003. The preliminary observations found that teachers are not fully utilising these facilities in their teaching. A survey was conducted to study the barriers preventing the integration and adoption of information and communication technology (ICT) in teaching mathematics. Six major barriers were identified: lack of time in the school schedule for projects involving ICT, insufficient teacher training opportunities for ICT projects, inadequate technical support for these projects, lack of knowledge about ways to integrate ICT to enhance the curriculum, difficulty in integrating and using different ICT tools in a single lesson and unavailability of resources at home for the students to access the necessary educational materials. To overcome some of these barriers, this paper proposes an e-portal for teaching mathematics. The e-portal consists of two modules: a resource repository and a lesson planner. The resource repository is a collection of mathematical tools, a question bank and other resources in digital form that can be used for teaching and learning mathematics. The lesson planner is a user friendly tool that can integrate resources from the repository for lesson planning.
