We adopted a new math curriculum this year called Envision. We will continue to build students' conceptual knowledge of math concepts and their ability to problem solve using multiple strategies using this resource. Envision, which is currently used at Cimarron Middle School, also provides additional materials to support students with a range of math knowledge.
We know from research that how parents talk with their children around math can affect their academic achievement either positively or negatively. We encourage you to foster a mathematical mindset at home by making math fun, honoring mistakes and talking positively about your own math abilities and how we teach math.
Bounce Pages is an online app that links parents to videos that demonstrate how concepts have been taught in the classroom. Once you download Bounce Pages you can scan either the video or the eye icons located on the top of the page. These links open to videos that students have watched in class that explain the multiple strategies taught in class. Parents can use these videos to understand strategies that they might not be familiar with. They can also have their students review if he/she is unclear. See additional information about this app below.
