This paper reports a case study on the implementation of a tool-based mathematics lesson. The design of a tool-based task and the implementation and evaluation of mathematics lessons were analyzed in the lens of a theoretical framework underpinning a duo interplay of material tools and digital tools serving as teaching and learning aids. It was found that material tools and digital tools serve different functions in the manipulation processes. The tools played different roles in the tool-based learning environment where students develop mathematics senses with interplay of the tools.
