An Introduction to Eureka Math2

Eureka Math²™ is a revolutionary math program designed to ensure that students move beyond rote memorization to build enduring math knowledge. 

Its learning design allows your student to build a deep conceptual understanding of mathematics that will better prepare them for college, career, and beyond.

Great Minds® honors and celebrates the role caregivers play in each student achieving greatness. Thank you for your partnership, we hope these resources support you on your Eureka Math² journey.



You are your student's chief advocate and most essential teacher–at homework time and always. The Learn and Apply workbooks are the materials your student will be using in the classroom and at home. Student materials may come home as single page or they may be found in your student's digital platform.

Click to expand a sampling of teacher and student materials and learn more about what is included in your student's materials below. 



The Learn book includes student materials for in-class work. Within the Learn students will find:

  • Lesson Pages that students use during the guided or directed portion of the lesson,
  • Problem Sets for independent practice during the lesson, with problems organized from simple to complex



The Apply book helps students deepen their understanding of the concepts they learned in class through practice at home. Apply has three unique components:

  • Family Math is a letter describing the major concepts in a topic
  • Additional Practice is a collection of problems for students to work on at home which interweave and distribute practice, and
  • Practice Partners takes students through the thinking of a hypothetical partner solving problems similar to those found in Additional Practice. 

Apply books are for Levels 1–5. Family Math has been included in the Learn book for Level K.

Family Math

A Family Math guide provides a topic overview including a content narrative, images of models and strategies, and key terminology. It also includes ideas for topic related math activities which may be done at home or in school. (In Kindergarten, the Family Math component is included in the Learn book.)


Additional Practice

Practice problems interleave and distribute practice. This helps students solidify their conceptual understanding and procedural skills, transfer knowledge to new applications, and build fluency. Each Practice is structured as two pages. The front page includes problems that represent learning from class that day. These problems are organized similarly to those in the Problem Set.

Practice Partners

Each Practice has a parallel supporting Practice Partner that shows problems like those worked in class and an example of the thinking that helps students solve those problems. Practice Partners serve as useful  tool for students to solve the Practice and Remember Problems, as well as a guide for families who may be supporting their student with the Practice and Remember problems at home.

Access Your Student's Digital
Eureka Math² Materials

There’s more to Eureka Math² than can fit on a printed page. Your student's teacher will be sending a username and password home to access Eureka Math² online. On this platform, students will have the ability to:

  • View their virtual "to-do" list of assignments and assessments
  • Participate in live digital lessons during class
  • View past work including teacher feedback in their online student locker
  • Access virtual manipulatives

Note: The Family Math and Practice Partners pages are only available in the student experience when those pages are assigned by the teacher.

Help Your Student Visualize Mathematics at Home

Eureka Math² manipulatives are classroom materials and tools our writers created to develop student understanding and maximize math learning. We have partnered with Didax, the official provider of Eureka Math² manipulatives, to give your student the essential tools to visualize the mathematics:

  • Digital Manipulatives – available within the Student Center on the Great Minds Digital Platform, students can create, manipulate, and erase mathematical work. 
  • Physical Manipulatives – available for purchase from our manipulatives partner, Didax, you can order such tools to help bring mathematics to life in your household.

Giving Your Student a Choice of Tools to Solve Math Problems

At Great Minds, we receive many questions from parents asking why their child needs to learn more conceptual math and multiple strategies for solving problems. Some parents suggest that simply learning the traditional method for solving a math problem (e.g., 2 + 2 = 4 or 6 × 8 = 48) is enough. We agree that students need to learn traditional methods for computation. Often, they’re the best tool for the job.

However, sometimes students need more options—they need more tools in their toolbox. If students learn multiple math strategies, not only can they solve more kinds of problems more efficiently, but they also gain a deeper understanding of mathematics and how to use it in daily life.

The following examples are Eureka Math2 models your student will learn to use.

The number bond model is used throughout Levels K—5 .
