Whether you're just getting started with Eureka or interested in learning more about the curriculum resources available, a Resource Overview Session is the place to start. These free webinar sessions show educators what online Eureka Math curriculum resources are available and how to get the most out of your Great Minds account.
The material Eureka Math is based on was originally created through a partnership with the New York State Education Department. Their expert review team, including renowned mathematicians who helped write the new standards, progressions, and the much-touted “Publisher’s Criteria,” strengthened an already rigorous development process.
Eureka Math was written by a team of teachers and mathematicians who took great care to present mathematics in a logical progression from grade PK—12. This coherent approach allows teachers to know what incoming students already have learned and ensures that students are prepared for what comes next. When implemented faithfully, Eureka Math will dramatically reduce gaps in student learning, instill persistence in problem solving, and prepare students to understand advanced math.
It’s not enough for students to know the process for solving a problem; they need to understand why that process works. Teaching mathematics as a "story," Eureka Math builds students’ knowledge logically and thoroughly to help them achieve deep understanding. While this approach is unfamiliar to those of us who grew up memorizing mathematical facts and formulas, it has been tested and proven to be the most successful method in the world.
