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.

For the first time in my 11 years of teaching I feel my class truly has a good grasp of fractions. Great job getting my kids there!

The Bridges program has been rewarding not only for students, but also for teachers as I've observed them developing their own understandings about math.
Grade 1 & 2 teacher — San Luis Obispo, CA
The third grade teacher who had my second grade students the following year couldn’t believe the vocabulary and conceptual development my kids had in math.
Grade 3 teacher — Madras, OR
In more than 20 years of teaching elementary math I have used a range of curricula in several states and two countries. I have never before had the level of success that I have experienced using Bridges as reflected in both exceptional test scores as well as the growth I witnessed on a daily basis.

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!
