Teachware is a set of computer software tools for computeraided interactive teaching of certain knowledge elements. The construction of teachware for statistical knowledge is a rather young field since it heavily depends on data structures and graphical interaction possibilities.

In this paper we present a teachware module for XploRe - a statistical computing environment. We focus on the situation of teaching wavelets, a technique for adaptation of spatial inhomogeneity.

In contrast to estimation with Fourier series which estimate a given function by different frequencies, wavelets decompose a function by time and frequency.
