This paper presents a new model for simulating procedural knowledge in the problem solving process with our ontological system, InfoMap. The method divides procedural knowledge into two parts: process control and action performer. By adopting InfoMap, we hope to help teachers construct curricula (declarative knowledge) and teaching strategies by capturing students' problem-solving processes (procedural knowledge) dynamically. Using the concept of declarative and procedural knowledge in intelligent tutoring systems, we can accumulate and duplicate the knowledge of the curriculum manager and student.
