In this study, we developed a web-based teaching material which we termed the "Peg Game." The purpose of the development of this game was to offer a means of supporting the mathematical activities of students at Upper Secondary Schools for the Deaf. We also examined the teaching effectiveness of this game at the school which utilized it. In order to do so, we established two experimental classes. Experimental Class 1 used original materials, and Experimental Class 2 used the developed web-based material. We then analyzed the performance of these classes and made a comparison. We found that the developed web-based material was able to support the mathematical activities of deaf students. The web-based material had an effect on bringing the activities into focus and increasing students' awareness of movement rules, and also promoted independent activities and offered a means of visual support. Additionally, in terms of our examination of the effectiveness of the teaching style which made use of the web-based material, it was suggested that the utilized web-based material supported the students' understanding of mathematical rules and laws, and had an effect in promoting communication between students who are more indenendently-minded.
