EnVision Math Grade 2 Student Workbook (2011 Version)
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. This highly visual math will help your child envision math concepts.
Grade 2 topics include writing number sentences, comparison, adding three numbers, even/odds, writing numbers, relating shapes to figures, reasoning, time, temperature, place value, patterns, and more. By the time your student completes the Grade 2 curriculum, he or she will be able to:
