The Math Learning Center is committed to offering free tools, materials, and other programs in support of our mission to inspire and enable individuals to discover and develop their mathematical confidence and ability.
SEG Measurement, an independent third-party research firm, recently conducted a study of the effectiveness of Bridges in Mathematics using data from the 2015–16 and 2016–17 school years. Approximately 1,000 students from over 40 classrooms participated in the study. Students that used Bridges were statistically matched with students using another elementary mathematics curriculum in a different district.
By comparing students’ end-of-year scores from their state math assessments (PARCC), SEG Measurement found that students in Bridges classrooms achieved significantly higher scores

Forefront Math is a third-party company that hosts Bridges assessments, organizes results, and uses clear, intuitive reports to help educators translate information into a powerful catalyst for improving instruction.
The Math Learning Center recognizes that the context for intervention is very different from the regular classroom setting. To enable educators to configure the Bridges Intervention materials to fit their local needs, schools and districts can buy additional materials without teachers guides.
Join us for an overview presentation for those considering adopting Bridges. Bridges in Mathematics is a clearly articulated PK–5 curriculum offering a unique blend of problem solving and skill building.
Our Pinterest board has hundreds of pins on math education, links to free resources, and much more. We have boards dedicated to grade levels as well as math topics. You're bound to find something that you can use right away in your classroom.
We’ve all been through it before. We spend months teaching our students mathematical content and over time, we start to see them making progress. And then all of a sudden winter break sneaks up, seemingly out of nowhere.
