This paper discusses the effects on student achievement when teachers implement a digital curriculum in the manner for which it was designed. The curriculum was created for a new course (MOW 1) to support students who might struggle in Algebra I. Technology considerations used in the development were focused on making the curriculum digitally available for easy teacher use, including links for access to dynamic spreadsheets and graphs as well as other digital materials for students. The materials also served as educative curriculum materials (Davis & Krajcik 2005) for the teacher with in-depth teacher notes that not only elaborated on the mathematics concepts but also offered pedagogical suggestions that included analysis of student thinking. The materials consist of investigations in which students can explore algebraic topics in ways that promote the development of mathematical modeling. All students in the MOW 1 course successfully completed Algebra I.
