A Look at our Mathematics Curriculum

  • Medina City Schools adopted Bridges in Mathematics with Number Corner second edition for the 2018-2019 school year. Grades K-5 allocate 75 minutes per day for mathematics instruction; 60 minutes for Bridges in Mathematics instruction and 15 minutes for Number Corner.

  • Bridges in Mathematics


    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.

  • Number Corner


    Number Corner is a skill-building program that revolves around the classroom calendar, providing daily practice as well as continual encounters with broader mathematical concepts in 15–20 minutes of engaging instruction.


    Revised to address the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, Number Corner second edition is an essential component of Bridges in Mathematics, but can be used to complement any K–5 curriculum. Number Corner is easily upgraded to the full Bridges curriculum.
