Building Mathematical Thinkers
Quincy students in Kindergarten through fifth grade are experiencing a new curriculum called Bridges in Mathematics. Adopted last spring, this math program equips teachers to fully implement the Washington State Math Learning Standards 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 linguistically, visually, and kinesthetically rich as it is mathematically powerful. Thank you to our Quincy community for supporting our schools so we can bring a high-quality math program to our students which will allow us to fulfill our Quincy Promise: All students graduate from high school and are prepared for the next step in their post-secondary education, career and life.
Specific questions about math can be directed to your student’s teacher.
