ABSTRACT Mathematics is a fundamental subject in the life of any student and traditionally has been considered as a difficult subject, but that description is not entirely fair. To transform this negative thinking new teaching and learning strategies should be adopted since the formation of the individual begins. Computer technologies can help in this task, in this work the multimedia system "The Circus of Mathematics", which was specifically designed to teach natural numbers from 1 to 5 was presented. The tool displays an interactive environment that uses an appropriate language to the age of children for whom it is intended. The experiment was conducted at an institution located in Bogota and was validated with a type test pretTest-postTest showing significant improvements in the quality of learning. It was used a quasi-experimental research design.
