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.
This week The Math Learning Center began what will become a regular series of support webinars for Bridges Educators in grades K–5. We will be hosting these webinars throughout the 2020–2021 school year. The intent is to provide teachers support to explore the resources that MLC has created and guidance for how they might use them to support students. The grade-level support webinars will be one hour long, with 45 minutes devoted to unpacking the upcoming unit of study and 15 minutes reserved for addressing frequently asked questions.
In this recorded session from the Zoom Academy, Bridges educators Kimberly Kelly and Mary Duden shared strategies, activities, and technologies for engaging elementary students in synchronous learning. The Bridges in Mathematics curriculum was designed for hands-on learning and student discourse. Moving that approach online required creative use of technology, modified materials, and professional development.
Wildfires have created hazardous air quality throughout much of Oregon, including our warehouse location in Salem. We shut down operations last Thursday afternoon and will remain closed until conditions improve enough that our team can safely return.

Whether you are returning to school in a virtual, in-person, or blended learning environment, flexibility will be as essential as pencils and paper this school year. The all-new Math at Home website offers the flexibility you need to present your students with rich activities to engage in deep mathematical thinking, no matter where their learning happens.
Recently, we released tech-enhanced activities (TEAs), tasks and activities based on Bridges in Mathematics Second Edition curriculum that have been adapted for use in synchronous or asynchronous environments. As Bridges teachers begin to explore TEAs, they are asking some important questions.

As the school year begins, students, educators, and schools face numerous challenges. One of these challenges is how to handle assessment. We’ve received variations of the following question from many Bridges educators in recent weeks:
How can we effectively assess students in a remote learning environment?
