In the Changes in Mathematics Teaching Project1 three mathematics departments made autonomous changes to their practice in KS3. We chronicled aspects of their practice, tracked a focus sample of students, and obtained KS3 results for the cohort. This paper reports characteristics of the department activity and identifies common features and difficulties which may be associated with the effects of the changes.
