The Math Learning Center is committed to ensuring that all students have access to high-quality mathematics instruction. As the nation’s population of English learners grows, it’s important to offer instruction that is accessible, culturally responsive, and academically rigorous.

This year, we were pleased to collaborate with the English Learners Success Forum (ELSF), an organization dedicated to improving instructional materials for English learners. We worked closely with the ELSF team to pilot their guidelines and materials review process.

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 who used Bridges were statistically matched with students using another elementary mathematics curriculum in a different district.

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.

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.
