Bridges Math Website
Here is a link to a helpful parent math site that supports our Bridges math program: http://www.mathlearningcenter.org/support/bridges What does 1,000 look like?
Second graders work with numbers up to 1,000, so recently they counted all the Unifix cubes in our classroom to see if there were 1,000. To organize the cubes, they made them into trains of 10, and then grouped ten 10s to make hundreds. When they were done counting, they discovered that we actually had 1,474. That's a lot of Unifix cubes! Improve your speed and accuracy in math facts with XtraMath!
