This paper discusses the first year of the SunBay Digital Mathematics Project (SunBay Math) and the project‘s implications for educational reform. It reviews the research literature on the SimCalc replacement unit Managing the Soccer Team and describes the unit‘s implementation in a large, urban district. Findings from professional development experiences, teacher observations, and student gain scores are shared. Similar to the results published in Roschelle, Schectman, et al. (2010), there was a large and significant increase in mathematics understanding for SunBay Math students who learned in classrooms implementing Managing the Soccer Team in contrast to students in Texas control classrooms.
