Program Information

How is enVisionMATH Common Core organized?

Each grade-level program in enVisionMATH Common Core is divided into topics. Topics are organized and color coded by the Common Core domains, so teaching is highly focused, manageable, and coherent.

What are the core program components in enVisionMATH Common Core?

The core program components include the Teacher Resource Package, Teacher's Program Overview, Math Diagnosis and Intervention System, student editions, and Digital Courseware.

What online support is available for enVisionMATH Common Core?

The enVisionMATH Common Core Digital Courseware offers comprehensive digital resources for today's technological students. The multiple resources online for teachers, parents, and students provide a wide range of flexibility. Teachers can use each digital component with an interactive whiteboard. All student edition online resources are accessible to parents.

What is the role of calculators in enVisionMATH Common Core?

Calculators are used as effective tools to help students think critically, develop problem-solving skills, solve more complex problems, and explore number concepts and patterns.

How does enVisionMATH Common Core develop conceptual understanding?

enVisionMATH Common Core develops conceptual understanding with daily Problem-Based Interactive Learning and step-by-step visual learning. Through Problem-Based Interactive Learning, lessons move from concrete ideas, to pictorial representations, to abstract representations. Each lesson supports mathematical practices with interactive exploration.
The Visual Learning Bridge provides step-by-step visuals in every lesson to illustrate concepts and improve understanding. Visual Learning Animations go beyond the printed page with animations and models that demonstrate each concept.

How are the Common Core State Standards addressed in enVisionMATH Common Core?

Several of the enVisionMATH Common Core authors, including Dr. Skip Fennell and Jane Schielack, were intimately involved in writing and reviewing the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Their knowledge informed new lesson content at every grade level to ensure that enVisionMATH Common Core supports the Standards for Mathematical Practice as well as the Standards for Mathematical Content in significant ways:

• All lessons support the Common Core State Standards for each and every grade; there is no extraneous content.
• The program is organized and color coded around the mathematical domains.
• The Standards for Mathematical Content and the Standards for Mathematical Practice are explicitly connected and identified in each lesson.
• Professional development at point of use helps teachers effectively utilize the Standards for Mathematical Practice.
• Expanded Topic Tests include extended response and performance-based items.
• Topic organization provides flexibility to meet district guidelines.

Assessment and Differentiation

What types of assessment (formative, summative, and so forth) are available in enVisionMATH Common Core?

enVisionMATH Common Core provides frequent progress monitoring that provides students valuable feedback while giving teachers information to help guide their instruction, define intervention, and outline remediation. Resources can be found at the beginning of each grade level, at the beginning of each topic, during and at the end of each lesson, at the end of each topic, every four topics, and at the end of the school year.

What is the role of differentiation in enVisionMATH Common Core?

enVisionMATH Common Core includes the following opportunities for differentiation:

• Visual learning that allows more students access to important mathematical ideas
• Meeting Individual Needs activities at the beginning of each topic
• Effective questioning strategies highlighted in each lesson
• Daily Quick Check to assess understanding, with a matching rubric and prescription for differentiated instruction
• Intervention activities for students who need additional help
• On-level and advanced daily Center Activities
• Leveled homework

Teaching an enVisionMATH Common Core Lesson

How much time should be spent on each lesson?

Each enVisionMATH lesson is designed to last 4560 minutes.

What does pacing look like?

The pacing in enVisionMATH Common Core supports one lesson per day. There are 110-122 lessons per grade and 10 Step-Up lessons to prepare students for next year. Additional time may be spent on review, remediation, differentiation, and formative and summative assessment as needed.
