Announcing Bridges in Mathematics Third Edition

Focused on Today's Classroom

Bridges helps students become problem solvers and discover the joy in mathematics.

Building Mathematical Thinkers

Our student-centered approach emphasizes classroom discourse, visual models, and conceptual understanding. Students build problem-solving skills, develop fluency, and make sense of mathematics through rich tasks with multiple entry points. Open-ended questions and student choice offer all learners the opportunity to develop a positive math identity.

Bridges students learn to: 

  • Think conceptually 
  • Work together 
  • Gather evidence and explain their answers 
  • Have different opinions and treat each other respectfully 
  • Use multiple strategies to solve a problem

Key Features of Third Edition

A lot has changed since we published Bridges in Mathematics Second Edition. Over the years we listened to educators using our curriculum and kept abreast of evolving research regarding pedagogy, math education, and professional development. We’ve used this learning to shape our newest offering, which retains the best of our last edition while adding important enhancements and new features.

Third edition brings additional focus to representation, guidance for creating an inclusive learning environment, and revised tasks to better support equity. Our curriculum amplifies each student’s voice and learner agency, sparking curiosity and helping them find joy in mathematics.

Educator Support

Bridges Teachers Guides include embedded professional learning offered through overviews, sidebars, suggested questions, and sample student dialogue. The Bridges Educator Site (BES) provides easy access to valuable instructional resources and additional professional learning.
