“The essence of mathematics lies in its freedom.” — Georg Cantor

In September, The Math Learning Center co-hosted Portland’s first Public Math Day with Two Rivers Bookstore  in St. Johns neighborhood.

The mission of Public Math Day strongly aligns with MLC’s mission, with the goal to bring opportunities to diverse children and families by engaging and interacting with math in their daily lives.

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.
