1-2-3! The strong impact of 3-Act Math.

We've all seen the bored and disengaged look in students' eyes when asked to solve another math problem. 3-Act Math can reengage students and get them highly involved in problem-solving. It’s one of the big reasons to check out enVision Mathematics ©2020. Act 1 pulls students into a problem with a real-world scenario. Act 2 lets them try multiple ways to solve it, and Act 3 is the big reveal, letting students present their work, discuss mistakes, and check out results. 

  • Low threshold, high ceiling tasks
  • Multiple ways to solve the problem
  • Real-world intrigue and videos
  • Collaboration and teamwork
  • Mathematical discourse
  • Formative assessment opportunities
