All students are engaged in rigorous instruction aligned with the Denver Public School’s Scope & Sequence using Bridges in Mathematics program as the basis of our curricula materials. Student have the opportunity to learn using a balance of traditional mathematics instruction progressive problem solving techniques, exploratory learning using manipulatives, and integrating technology for personalized learning.
Bridges in Mathematics is a comprehensive PK–5 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. It taps into the intelligence and strengths of all students by presenting material that is as linguistically, visually, and kinesthetically rich as it is mathematically powerful.
