This paper builds on the outcomes of the Cornerstone Maths pilot study, a USA/UK collaboration, which is now in a phase of scaling to over 100 schools. We describe the vision for the project and its iterative design, both informed by a twenty-year history of research on dynamic digital technologies. The resulting intervention builds on our understanding of some of the constraints to the widespread use of dynamic digital technologies by pupils in mathematics, which relate to accessibility, teacher development, curriculum alignment and the need to support the instrumentation process for teachers. The accompanying research agenda is concerned with evaluating models for scaling that are mindful of the ‘grain size’ of analysis and the necessary re-alignment of the design principles of the innovation to take account of implementation imperatives.
