Giving back to the math education community.
Bridges University Program
What better way to prepare mathematics teachers than to use examples from innovative PreK-5 classroom materials? We offer access to the content of our elementary curriculum materials, Bridges in Mathematics, for use in university settings. This includes access to the core curriculum of both Bridges in Mathematics 2nd Edition and 3rd Edition as well as Number Corner, Bridges Intervention, and Concept Quests. University programs or faculty may request a free subscription to the Bridges Educator Site which contains this full suite of Bridges in Mathematics content in PDF format. You’ll also have access to a host of support resources.
As a mission-driven organization we're interested in promoting equitable and effective mathematics teaching practices. By providing this free resource, we hope to contribute to elementary teacher preparation and professional development. In particular, we believe these Bridges materials may be useful for elementary mathematics content courses for teachers, as well as mathematics methods and field-based courses.
Free Math Resources
Apps and App Activities
Many mathematics teacher educators know our apps and have used them to support their work with students and teachers. If you love using these, you might also be interested in our searchable set of app activities which are rich tasks that can be explored and represented with the apps.
Developed in partnership with Maier Math Foundation, this searchable collection of activities will help spark meaningful mathematical discourse. Choose from familiar routines with powerful images such as: Which One Doesn’t Belong?, Today’s Number, Would You Rather?, and Same & Different.
We offer 200+ free resources from our Pre-K storybooks to full text previously published programs: Box It or Bag It, Opening Eyes to Mathematics, Math and the Mind’s Eye, Visual Mathematics.
Math Teacher Leader Scholarships
In collaboration with the Association of Math Teacher Educators (AMTE), The Math Learning Center created a scholarship fund for aspiring elementary mathematics specialists. Winners receive $2,000 to enhance their mathematics knowledge, teaching and leadership by enrolling in university coursework that will result in becoming a certified mathematics specialist.
