Abstract: Maths Support Centres are becoming increasingly importance in the Czech Republic. The existence of these centres can have a positive influence on the mathematical preparation of students of engineering. Also, students of other study fields
can utilize these services for professional development. As the suitable interconnection with educational procedures, the information technologies can be considered. In the context of using the information technologies, several teaching techniques were proposed in the form of ideas, which can be applied in favour of efficiency of the tutoring processes. Some of them would be e.g. based on the adaptive feedback strategy with regards to the pedagogical cybernetical approaches. In this paper, the possibilities of mathematical software are presented with a view to utilising them in the feedback process of tutoring in the Maths Support Centre at Tomas Bata University in Zlin. In the presented proposals, the geometry was selected as the most frequently appeared and favourite topic obtained in the frame of the previous quantitative analysis of students’ preferences.
