Bridges in Mathematics

  • The Christina School District has adopted the Bridges in Mathematics, 2nd edition program.
    Bridges in Mathematics is a comprehensive K-5 curriculum that is rigorous, coherent, engaging, and accessible to all learners. It weaves together the standards for content and mathematical practices in ways that support student learning by encouraging students to explore, develop, test, discuss, and apply ideas.
    The curriculum features key visual models that deepen students’ mathematical learning while engaging with mathematical content. It focuses on developing students’ deep understandings of mathematical concepts, proficiency with key skills, and reasoning abilities through age-appropriate problems and investigations in the areas of number, operations, algebraic thinking, fractions, decimals, measurement, data, and geometry.
    A Bridges classroom features a combination of whole group, small group, and independent activities that are problem-centered.

Bridges Activities

  • Problems & Investigations (K-5)

  • Work Places (K-5)

  • Math Forums (3-5)

  • Problem Strings (3-5)

  • Assessments (K-5)

  • Number Corner (K-5)

Bridges Home Connections (Homework)

  • Home Connections assignments are sent home at the discretion of your child’s teacher. At times, your child may bring home math games or activities for you to enjoy together, but the main role for parents is not to teach but to guide your student and take an interest in their work. You will be receiving Unit Overviews throughout the year that explain the math concepts the class is currently focused on and suggest specific ways you may support your child.
