Summary: Interviews with SimCalc teachers in the democratizing access to core mathematics across grades 912 study led to unexpected insights into instructional practices  and teacher beliefs that informed those practices. We found that working with SimCalc, over time, changed some teachers' routine instructional practices and challenged them to reconsider their views about how children learn mathematics. These transformations were different across teachers but patterns emerged that could be linked to the amount of time teachers spent in the project, and to the instructional approaches inherent in SimCalc.
