enVisionMATH is organized using the Understanding by Design (UbD) model that frames instruction in terms of “Big Ideas,” “Essential Understandings,” and “Essential Questions.” Content is presented in “Topics” (i.e., chapters) made up of sets of lessons that address a particular concept or skill. Each Topic includes at least one “Problem-Solving” lesson that focuses on a particular problem-solving strategy, such as drawing a picture or looking for a pattern.
Teacher and student editions have a “Mathematical Practices Handbook” that provides an overview of the MPS and guidance in how to use them. MPS videos provide a student-friendly overview of the standard, questions to support students in using the practices (e.g., “How can I check to make sure my answer makes sense?”), and examples of the standards in use. Videos help teachers make connections between the MPSs and evaluate students’ ability to use them.
At each grade level, enVisionMATH provides a “Common Core Standards Practice Workbook” and the a “Math Diagnosis and Intervention System” (MDIS). Workbooks contain practice activities for each standard and end-of-year practice tests and performance tasks. MDIS includes a diagnostic test and intervention resources to support RtI, remediation, and summer school instruction.
Discover research-based K-12 programs that give you the freedom to choose how you teach. Whether you’re looking for an interactive, problem-solving approach or an inquiry-based, student-centered curriculum, Savvas has you covered. Our basal and NSF mathematics programs were designed to support Common Core Math curriculum. We also offer programs to meet supplemental, and intervention needs.
