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.
MLC will showcase Bridges Second Edition as well as our growing collection of math apps at NCTM in Denver April 18-20. In addition to exhibiting, we’ll be delivering two product workshop sessions featuring key members of the Bridges development team. We invite you to stop by our booth and hope you will also attend one or more of the presentations by MLC authors, leaders, and staff.
Berrien Springs Public Schools(“Home of the Shamrocks”) in Berrien Springs, Michigan has adopted Bridges Second Edition. A long-time Bridges First Edition site, curriculum team members said they are “true believers” in the program.
Last year I spoke with Shepherd Elementary principal John Farley who was looking for some new math materials. After our conversation he and his staff decided to start with Number Corner and Pia Hansen, MLC director of professional development, led the workshops in August.
The Number Rack facilitates the natural development of children’s number sense. Rows of moveable, colored beads encourage learners to think in groups of fives and tens, helping them to explore and discover a variety of addition and subtraction strategies.
