How does enVision develop both conceptual and
procedural understanding across the breadth of the program?
enVision Integrated Mathematics is designed to achieve a coherent progression of mathematical content within each course and across the program, building lesson to lesson. Every lesson includes online practice instructional examples as the progression of topics builds, allowing students additional practice with these skills and to develop a deeper conceptual understanding.
At the beginning of every topic, teachers are provided with support for the focus of the topic, how the topic fits into an overall coherence of the grade and across the grades, the balance of rigor in the topic, and how the practices enrich the mathematics in the topic. Carefully designed learning progressions achieve coherence across grades.
Coherence is supported by common elements across grades, such as Thinking Habits questions for math practices and diagrams for representing quantities in a problem. Coherence across topics within a grade is the result of developing mathematics as a body of interconnected concepts and skills. Across lessons and standards, coherence is achieved when new content is taught as an extension of prior learning–developmentally and mathematically. (For example, Model & Discuss/Explore & Reason/Critique & Explain at the start of lessons engages students in a problem-based learning experience that connects prior knowledge to new ideas and sets them up for the new concepts they will encounter in Step 2 of the lesson: Understand & Apply.
Look Back! and Look Ahead! connections are highlighted in the Coherence part of Topic Overview pages in the Teacher’s Edition.
The Topic Background: Rigor page shows teachers how areas of rigor will be addressed in the topic, and details how conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application builds within each topic to provide the rigor required.
On the first page of every lesson, the Lesson Overview includes sections titled Focus, Coherence, and Rigor. The Rigor section highlights the element or elements of rigor emphasized in the lesson, which may be one, two, or all three. Features in every lesson support each element, but the emphasis will vary depending on the standard being developed for conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and application during both instruction and practice, as described below:
Step 1 Explore supports coherence by helping students connect what they already know to a problem in which new math ideas are embedded. When students make these connections, conceptual understanding emerges. Problem-based learning provides students with opportunities for productive struggle, time to make connections to the mathematical ideas and conceptual understandings. They can choose to represent their thinking and learning in a variety of ways. Online tools and manipulatives are available.
- Understand and Apply
Step 2 Understand and Apply is designed to connect students’ thinking about the opening activity to the new ideas of the lesson. These concepts are presented through a series of visually rich example types purposefully designed to promote understanding. Conceptual Understanding examples present a key mathematical concept in the lesson to help students develop deep understanding of the mathematical content. Skill examples focus on helping students build fluency with skills. Finally, Application examples show students how mathematics can be used to solve real-world problems.
- Practice and Problem Solving
Step 3 Practice & Problem Solving offers robust and balanced practice to solidify understanding. Students embark on a series of carefully sequenced and crafted exercises to apply what they just learned and to practice towards mastery. The design of the Practice & Problem Solving section is intentionally sequenced into four parts: Understand, Practice, Apply, and Assessment Practice.
- Assess & Differentiate
Step 4 Assess & Differentiate features a Lesson Quiz and a comprehensive array of intervention, on-level, and advanced resources for all learners, with the goal that all students have the opportunity for extensive work in the state standards. Leveled practice with scaffolding is included at times. Varied problems are provided and math practices are identified as appropriate. Higher Order Thinking problems offer more challenge. Students have ample opportunity to focus on conceptual understanding and procedural skills and to apply the mathematics they just learned to solve a range of problems.
