Polson K-5 Classrooms Pilot New Math Programs

New Math Program in K-5

Polson School District 23 is piloting two math programs for the 2019-20 school year in all K-5 classrooms. Eureka Math and Bridges, you can access these with the following links.



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.

Great Minds developed Eureka Math, working with classroom teachers and mathematicians from higher education. The creators sought to produce a math curriculum that would meet more rigorous learning standards; improve students' understanding of mathematics as a body of knowledge rather than simply a set of skills; help students better apply math toward solving real-world problems; and provide teachers with detailed instructional methods.

In addition, you may call or stop by the District office to discuss either program. Please call to schedule an appointment 883-6355 ext 605
