This paper describes the first phase of SunBay Digital Mathematics Project’s attempt to improve the middle school mathematics learning ecology of a large, urban district. A dynamic unit incorporating SimCalc MathWorlds® (Roschelle, Knudsen, & Hegedus, 2009) was scaled up to support efforts to teach rate and proportionality. Findings discuss implementation, professional development, and the power of technology to build support for extended programs of change.
