Summary: This article aims to show how interacting with Java applets, form their design in activities to their systematic use, can be a suitable way for learning mathematics. Its gives a functional definition of a mathematics applet and studies the use of an applet from a major website. It then compares institutional websites for five indicators and finally designs an activity where interaction with an applet creates a cognitive mathematical need. It introduces the notions of subjectmedium interaction as a unit of cognitive interaction, as well as processes of instrumentation and instrumentalisation as instrumental geneses.
