The curriculum overall is too much talk, too little practice. Why do our children need to learn five different short cuts for adding when they haven't even had a chance to practice one way to add? It is terribly confusing for kids. I've yet to meet a teacher, student, or parent that likes this curriculum.
First off, I am a math tutor with nearly 25 years of experience, as well as an undergraduate and two graduate degrees in math. I have seen just about everything when it comes to math curricula in my tutoring experience, ranging from the "drill and kill" Saxon-style exercises to the "fluffy, new math" discovery-based series. Believe me, I have seen my fair share of awful math texts. However, enVision Math is not one of those. Rather, it is much more akin to an attempt to take the world-renowned Singaporean methods for teaching elementary mathematics and apply them to the US market.
This book is solid, in my opinion. It has plenty of exercises that require the student to compute (to satisfy those who like the traditional pencil-to-paper exercises that dominated math education 30 and 40 years ago), as well as an emphasis on creating concrete and pictorial depictions of what numbers really mean (to allow students to really internalize the base 10 decimal system). I seriously cannot see what this other teacher is complaining about. Furthermore, the objectives for Grade 1 are reasonable, ranging from understanding the place values of tens and ones to single-digit addition & subtraction to a basic understanding of geometry, time, and money. I have seen plenty of watered-down Grade 1 math books that do not attempt to advance kids through nearly as much material as enVision does. (It would also be suitable for an accelerated kindergartener.) Rather, the enVision authors hold a high bar for what they expect children to master at each grade level.
Those who are used to extremely fluffy, discovery-based math will find this book too "hard" or "boring" because of its emphasis on computation, while those who prefer computational drills alone will find the pictorial and concrete explanations too "light." In reality, both types of explanation are needed to ensure a solid mathematical understanding in young children. Remarkably similar to the Singapore 1A and 1B workbooks, I think enVision has struck just the right balance with this book.
If only we could turn back the clock and get our old math program back- FOR A FRACTION OF THE COST!
