The Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley enVision Math Program is based upon a vision of children engaged and understanding math at a conceptual level. Using problem-based interactive activities and a strong emphasis on visual learning, the text is filled with graph tools, pictures of money and counters, and other visual representations to help students work their way to thinking about abstract mathematical concepts.
Grade 6 topics include place value, order of operations, estimating products and quotients, properties of equality, prime factorization, greatest common factor, probability, percents, surface area, statistics, volume, and more.
Organized around twenty 'topics,' each textbook unit begins with intriguing questions, such as 'how can you read very large numbers?' that are answered within each lesson, as well as a short list of review questions. Eight lessons within the topic feature a primary conceptual question with explanations that include highlighted terms and concrete representations. An additional example is given and an 'explain it' question asks the child to explain the concept behind the exercise. A set of guided practice, independent practice, and problem solving questions follow for approximately 13-28 questions per lesson. A special connections page is included within each topic, and focuses on a specific skill, such as 'adding with mental math' or 'algebra connections' through step-by-step example and practice questions. At the beginning of the book, a 'problem-solving handbook' provides step-by-step visual guidance on how to work through problems and understand bar diagrams; a large chart of problem-solving strategies is also included for students to learn and apply. 20 topics, 140 lessons.
The MindPoint Quiz Show CD-ROM is a challenging, interactive multimedia game that will assess your student's understanding, track their performance, and best of all, make learning fun. Single-player, multiplayer and team playing options are included.
The Teacher's Edition CD-ROM lesson instructions include a 'quick and easy lesson overview' that covers the objective, vocabulary, and materials needed, as well as teaching tips, engagement ideas, and guided practice ideas. Review and assessment sections contain test answers. The Printable Features include center activities; vocabulary cards; an interactive math story; assessments; and a variety of lesson masters to help with understanding and practice.
