enVision Elementary Math Program

Beginning in the 2014-15 school year, the Francis Howell School District (FHSD) implemented a new elementary math program called enVision Math. The new math program provides increased rigor and meets the needs of high achieving students, as well as those students who need additional time and support. As with the change to any academic programming, the new math program was aligned to FHSD and state standards.

It was twelve years since FHSD’s last elementary mathematics program adoption. In anticipation of a change to the math program, over forty FHSD elementary teachers spent two years researching programs and best practices for teaching mathematics to elementary children. FHSD teachers’ work and research culminated in a math selection that they believe will meet the learning needs of our students and teaching needs of our teachers. As the District transitioned to the new program and materials, parents may have heard their child talk about the following:

  • Videos and/or interactive technology lessons that support their math work
  • Student materials that are accessible at home
  • Hands-on situations and real-world types of problems that will help students develop a deeper understanding of math and reasoning concepts
  • Journal activities that will help students develop critical thinking and writing skills

To help parents understand the change in the math materials, three Math Parent Information Nights were conducted in three areas of the District. The Frequently Asked Questions Flyer includes information about the enVision Math program and its set-up, its relationship to the standards, and the online components available to students and parents.
