Bridge


WELCOME

Bridge

Bridge is the hybrid of math and language arts, with reasoning as the common theme.  In bridge class we will focus on:

  •  Geometric reasoning: students will use logic to practical problems related to everything from scale drawings, to transformations in the coordinate plane, to triangle congruency

  • Statistical reasoning: students will make meaning of data through analysis of probability and the basics of statistics

  • Reasoning about non-fiction: students will dig deep into non-fiction text, and use this as a basis to make reasoned arguments related to topics as varied such as celebrities and robots.

  • Reasoning about fiction: students will read a complete novel, and use their reading skills as a basis for analyzing topic, theme, point of view and inference.

CONCEPT

Throughout the year, students will also be building key academic vocabulary. The overall goal of bridge, beyond meeting state math and language arts standards, is to prepare students as critical thinkers moving into high school and beyond.
