PDS: Bridges in Mathematics: A Closer Look

Grade Level: K-5

(Currently offered K-5 by individual or blended grade levels.) This eight week course offers support for those currently implementing Bridges in Mathematics including teachers, resource specialists, student teachers, staff developers, teacher assistants, and paraprofessionals. The extended time frame and online format allow for deep reflection and a learning experience tailored to the particular circumstances of each participant. A Closer Look addresses successful implementation of the curriculum while also investigating why and how this approach to learning mathematics benefits both the teacher and the student.

Areas of focus include:

  • Exploring mathematical "Big Ideas" within the lessons you are teaching.
  • Using questioning strategies to promote autonomous, self-directed student learning.
  • Planning mathematics lessons using visual models.
  • Organizing and managing the classroom.
  • Using Home Connections to enhance parent communication.
  • Using student work to assess mathematical growth.

This 20-hour online course offers support for implementing the new Common Core State Standards with the Bridges in Mathematics curriculum. The course explores the new standards and mathematical practices, alignment documents and replacement lessons in Bridges. Teachers read, reflect and respond to weekly prompts about the critical areas of focus and learning progressions in the CCSS, observe video segments of Supplemental Lessons, and share their experiences with new assessments aligned to the CCSS.

Credits: Quarter vs Semester Hours

Western Oregon University operates on the quarter system (or terms) which divides the calendar year into four quarters, three of which constitute a complete academic year. Fall term runs from late September to mid-December, winter term from early January to mid-March, and spring term from late March or early April to mid-June. WOU also offers an optional summer session.

 

The semester system divides the calendar year into two semesters of 15 weeks each. Most universities on this system have a fall semester from late August to mid-December and a spring semester from early or mid-January to early or mid-May. Many also offer an optional summer session.

 

Academic credit earned in quarter hours converts to semester hours at 2/3 of its value, so 3 quarter hours = 2 semester hours.

 

Credit earned in semester hours converts to quarter hours at 3/2 of its value.
