Summary This case study looks at how a teacher used interactive exercises and exploratory investigations to reinforce concepts that have been learnt in a Year 8 Mathematics class. It highlights the practical problems faced by the teacher in terms of technical issues such as slow download times and logging on problems as well as class management issues. The findings are discussed in the light of the teacher’s mediation with the affordances of the Internet.
