For Families

Going beyond the classroom

These resoures are relevant for all families. For resources specific to families with students using Bridges in Mathematics please see Support.

Books about math

Children of all ages enjoy sharing books with a caring adult. Visit our Virtual Bookshelf for suggested titles that will help improve skills, foster positive attitudes toward math, and create opportunities for family togetherness. 

Online skills practice

There are so many online resources available for kids that it's hard to know where to begin. As part of our ongoing research and development, we have compiled a list of free, age-appropriate games that we believe are effective for practicing basic skills.
