# Customer Reviews for Pearson Learning enVision Math Grade 4 (2011 Copyright) Homeschool Bundle

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 bar diagram tools, pictures of money and counters, and other visual representations to help students work their way to thinking about abstract mathematical concepts.

Grade 4 topics include adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing whole numbers; multiplying by 2-digit numbers; lines, angles, and shapes; understanding and performing operations with decimals; measurement; probability, and more.

Organized around twenty "topics," each textbook unit begins with intriguing questions, such as "how much did the world's largest pumpkin weigh?" that are answered within each lesson, as well as a short list of review questions. 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 13-40 questions per lesson. A special connections page is included within each topic, and focuses on a specific skill, such as "mixed problem solving" 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. Tests, enrichment pages, and re-teaching pages are also included. 20 topics.

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. The single-player mode includes "race the clock" and "challenge the computer" features; multiplayer and team playing options are also included.

The Teacher's Edition CD-ROM is integral to the program's use. Planning information on the topic is provided, as well as specific lessons. 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 contains test answers for the end of each lesson. The Printable Features include center activities that support the lesson objective; vocabulary cards; an interactive math story; assessments; and lesson masters that include a problem of the day, quick check for review, re-teaching tools, additional practice problems to support the lesson, and enrichment sheets for further understanding. Each Lesson Master sheet has an annotated and non-annotated version.
