Well-known mathematics educator Dr. Francis “Skip” Fennell, a past President of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and a member of the Writing Teams for the NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, the Curriculum Focal Points, and the Common Core State Standards, is an author of Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley enVisionMATH. In serving in a variety of policy-related roles in the field of mathematics education, Dr. Fennell has had numerous opportunities to collaborate with education officials around the world. He said, “As we developed the enVisionMATH program, we were able to draw upon our work and analysis of international curriculum efforts, including programs from Singapore and other Asian-culture countries. The enVisionMATH author team has incorporated principles from this international benchmarking into our program. So, with enVisionMATH, from kindergarten onward, Virginia’s students will have the benefit of an education centered around the importance of thinking mathematically, setting the foundation for success in middle and high school and on in to college.”
