In this research, we address the issue of the low academic performance detected in Mexican students at the basic educational level (6-12 years). Although we have detected problems in several areas of study, our interest lies in the difficulties that arise in solving problems with geometric figures. To carry out this research, a conceptual framework was built based on four elements, mathematical modeling as it allows students to make an abstraction of the real environment and translate it into a model, in order to obtain a resolution to a problem. Didactics, used to carry out a sequence through a series of steps to strengthen the concept, the mathematics that is studied in school, specifically geometric figures and the concepts related to their perimeter. And finally, technology, which is the indispensable tool in uniting these elements. The objective of the research was to generate a didactic sequence based on modeling and programming of a mobile application for learning the notion of perimeter in primary education, and whose goal is to promote the strengthening of the student's mathematical thinking. In this presentation we describe the emotions, feelings, actions, concerns, ideas, etc., on the part of the students in a process that is unknown to many because they have interacted with a mobile educational application. We also show elements corresponding to the mobile application generated for children to interactively answer questions related to the perimeter of geometric figures.
