PAUSD Mathematics Program Vision
PAUSD provides an exceptional math program that supports every student developmentally in achieving mastery and confidence at each individual's highest level. Math instruction is aligned to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. Teachers use Bridges in Mathematics, including Number Corner, adopted in 2017.
Bridges in Mathematics is a comprehensive K-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.
