Bridge

Welcome to Bridge!2019 2020 Bridge Department


Bridge is the hybrid of math and reading, 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.
