Bridges Third Edition Webinars

Over the course of the 2023-24 school year, we dove into the aspects of what differentiates Bridges in Mathematics Third Edition from its predecessor, and gave educators real-world examples and practice opportunities to implement the curriculum in their classrooms.

September Webinar

“Equity in Mathematics: Bridges Third Edition Insights”

Learn about the equity-based practices of Bridges Third Edition through connecting directly with the curriculum, watching real-life classroom examples, and reflecting on how these practices can be used in your classroom context.

 

October Webinar

"Implementing Bridges Third Edition with an Asset-Based Lens"

Come to understand the core principles of Bridges Third Edition, learn practical classroom strategies, and gain valuable insights from real-world analysis to see how the curriculum deepens mathematical understanding and fosters a positive math identity by focusing on the unique strengths and lived experiences of every student.

 

November Webinar

“Affirming Mathematics Learners' Identities with Bridges Third Edition

Explore how Bridges Third Edition uses experiential learning, equity-based practices, and strategic planning to shapes meaningful and equitable math experiences for all students.

 

December Webinar

"Progressions of Fractions Models and Concepts in Bridges 3rd Edition"

Examine and understand our fraction models more deeply so you can support all students in making sense of fraction concepts.

 

January Webinar

"The Development of Computational Fluency in Bridges Third Edition”

You already know that Bridges Third Edition uses visual models to support the development of computational fluency. Learn more about how our approach to fluency works.

 

February Webinar

”Progressions of Area Models and Concepts in Bridges Third Edition”

Learn more about how progression of arrays and area models across grades supports the development of multiplicative thinking. 

March Webinar

”Engaging Multilingual Learners Using Bridges Third Edition”

Bridges’ asset-based approach leverages students’ use of language to enhance learning and the development of positive mathematics identities. We examine the resources in the Bridges Third Edition curriculum, hear from two experienced dual-language educators, and observe multilingual learners using Bridges Third Edition to show how the curriculum engages multilingual learners in deep mathematics.

 

April Webinar

”Supporting Neurodiverse Learners with Bridges Third Edition”

Bridges’ asset-based approach recognizes neurodiversity as a strength. We examine the resources in the Bridges Third Edition curriculum, Concept Quests, and Bridges Intervention to show how Bridges builds on students’ multiple approaches to help them make sense of mathematics and communicate their understanding.

May Webinar

”Supporting Each and Every Learner with Bridges Third Edition”

Responsive teaching practices support the full range of students as they participate and learn. We focus on practices and resources for using Bridges Third Edition to engage each and every learner in deep mathematics.

Webinar Replays

We understand that some students may need more time, more opportunities, and more support than others. During this interactive session, you'll see how our revised Bridges Intervention emphasizes problem solving, uses faithful visual models, and focused on developing fluency to help all students make sense of mathematics.
An hour long introduction to the approach, structure and components of the Bridges in Mathematics program, a clearly articulated PK–5 curriculum offering a unique blend of problem solving and skill building.
Concept Quests supplements Bridges in Mathematics Second Edition Grades 2–5 to extend learning and provide enrichment for all students. In this webinar, you’ll learn about the materials and the accompanying (free) professional development resource, as well as experience some of the tasks firsthand.
Bridges Breakout: Number Rack helps students learn addition and subtraction math facts using the number rack, a math tool that builds conceptual understanding and fluency through seeing and understanding number relationships. In this webinar, The Math Learning Center’s Nicole Rigelman and Shelly Scheafer walk you through Bridges Breakout: Number Rack with a focus on the underlying pedagogy, classroom use cases, and example lessons from the kit.
