New Math Program —- Unit One Information

Welcome to Bridges in Mathematics Bridges in Mathematics, the second edition is a comprehensive K–5 mathematics curriculum that equips teachers to fully implement the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics in a manner that is rigorous, coherent, engaging, and accessible to all learners. The curriculum focuses on developing students’ deep understandings of mathematical concepts, proficiency with key skills, and ability to solve complex and novel problems. Bridges blends direct instruction, structured investigation, and open exploration. The program taps into the intelligence strengths of all students by presenting material that is as linguistically, visually, and kinesthetically rich as it is mathematically powerful.

Our first unit is titled, Multiplicative Thinking and broken up into three modules:

  1. Models for Multiplication & Division
  2. Primes & Composites
  3. Multiplicative Comparisons & Equations

The fourth module, Measurement Experiences, will introduce measurement but won’t be assessed.  Students will be bringing home their Home Connections workbook at least twice a week to complete homework and return it to school the next day.
