This thesis describes the application and extension of design patterns in Technology Enabled Active Learning (TEAL) project. The aim of TEAL is to help students developing better intuition about conceptual models of physical phenomena and understanding the physical concepts of these phenomena better. Computer simulation is one of the most important parts of TEAL. Design patterns are reusable solutions to recurring problems that occur during software development. The purpose of design patterns is to systematically name, explain and evaluate an important and recurring design experience in Object-Oriented systems so that developers can use it effectively. Design patterns play an important role in the design and refine process of TEAL simulations. We used several design patterns, such as Factory Method, Adapter, Iterator and Template in TEAL. Some experiences derived from TEAL are also summarized as design patterns in this thesis.
