Math Workshop takes place immediately after FIT every day. Again this year, Eanes ISD will be using a new and improved curriculum. Know as Envision Math, this curriculum is accessible both in print and on the iPad, meaning that students can complete lessons, assessments, and games with just one swipe of a finger.
Math units are organized by concept, with each topic building on the previous one. At the beginning of each unit, students are given a pre-test that assesses what they already know about the topic. After analyzing these results, the teacher divides students into 5 groups so that she can appropriately differentiate instruction, meeting each student where they are instead pushing them ahead too quickly or holding them back from engaging with more challenging concepts. During Math Workshop, students rotate around the room in five stations: 1) Direct Instruction, 2) Independent Practice, and 3)Games/Assessment 4)Math with technology 5)Using Math Tools
Our math units are as follows: Numeration/Place Value Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division Fractions Patterns Data Analysis Personal Financial Literacy Area Perimeter Capacity Weight Time Mass 2D and 3D shapes
