Improving Literacy and Math: Two Programs with Potentially Positive Effects
enVisionMATH is a core curriculum for students in grades K–6. The program seeks to help students develop an understanding of math concepts through problem-based instruction, small-group interaction, and visual learning with a focus on reasoning and modeling. The WWC reviewed two studies that investigated the effects of enVisionMATH on the math performance of elementary school students. One of the studies meets WWC evidence standards without reservations and included 1,156 elementary school students in grades 2–4 in eight locations across the United States. Based on this study, the WWC determined that enVisionMath has potentially positive effects on mathematics achievement for elementary school students.
