A unique blend of direct instruction, structured investigation, and open exploration.
An engaging selection of visual models, manipulatives, games, apps and other unique learning materials
Seeing, touching, and sketching ideas create pictures in the mind’s eye, helping learners construct, understand, and apply mathematical ideas. Bridges incorporates increasingly complex visual models, including the number line and the array models, in a coherent framework across the curriculum.
Research, Results, and Correlations
Grade 3 teacher — Ft. Bridger, WY
In all of my years as a teacher, I have never seen the caliber of student responses that I got from last Friday's assessment. I can look at the results and know my students really do understand multiplication.
Grade 5 parent — Evansville, WY
My daughter never liked math before this year. Now she will not miss school for anything because she'd miss Bridges. That math program you're using is great!
Kindergarten teacher — Hood River, OR
Many students, especially my ELL students, are developing a stronger sense of number using the visual ten-frames and finger models from Bridges. These strategies are providing successful concrete to representational forms for students.
Kindergarten teacher — Pittsburgh, PA
Bridges is a ‘brain friendly’ program that helps the students make connections from one subject to another by using developmentally appropriate activities.
Math Coach — Canyon City, OR
Our current fifth graders have been using Bridges since kindergarten. Their teachers are extremely impressed with the math vocabulary and deep understanding these students bring forth in the classroom.
