The elementary mathematics curriculum takes advantage of young children's inquisitive nature to form the foundation. This involves utilizing multiple opportunities to build students' interest for mathematics through exploration and development of strategies and approaches based on students' knowledge.

 Bridges in Mathematics        Number Corner

Building Mathematical Thinkers

Bridges in Mathematics is a comprehensive PK–5 curriculum that equips teachers to fully address state standards in a rigorous, engaging, and accessible manner. Students gain a deep understanding of concepts, proficiency with key skills, and the ability to solve complex problems. The curriculum is composed of three distinct but integrated components: Problems & Investigations, Work Places and Number Corner.

      A proven pathway to fluency 

Number Corner is an essential component of Bridges in Mathematics but can be used to complement any K–5 curriculum. Number Corner is a skill-building program that revolves around the classroom calendar, providing daily practice as well as continual encounters with broader mathematical concepts in 15–20 minutes of engaging instruction.
