This paper reports on an aspect of a research project that examined the use of apps in primary school mathematics programmes. It reports teacher and student perspectives on how they used a range of digital tools within the apps to solve problems. We consider the interplay between the affordances of the mobile technologies, including multi- representation and haptic, with other social and pedagogical aspects, and how the assemblage of social and technological entities influences the ways that teachers might integrate apps into their mathematics programmes.
