University Relations

The Math Learning Center gives back to the mathematics education community through our Bridges University Program and our sponsorship of Elementary Math Specialists scholarships.

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 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.
