Well, this is no bad idea, but I think kmathtool should also be an application 
for users who already know something about mathematics, or students who want 
to use it to do their homework easier. So I am convinced we shouldn t drop 
those things which are already implented. Some of them I think are really 
usefull, such as the geometry part.

According to my propose I'd like it when you can select here between a 
"Learning Mode" and a "Assistance Mode" (other names welcome). So one could 
select if he likes to learn or if he likes kmathtool as a math tool.

I hope you understood what I mean with my proposes. It is not that I don t 
like your idea to restyle kmathtool to a only teaching application, but I 
think a mixed application is a lot better.
