5 RESOURCES TO HELP EDUCATORS GIVE PARENTS EUREKA MOMENTS
We recognize the importance of supporting parents during Eureka Math implementation. After all, most parents didn’t learn math the way their children are learning it today, so it’s no wonder they have questions and even concerns.
Here are some resources that will help parents be prepared and confident assisting their children with homework and engaging in other math activities. Families around the country are finding them useful and enjoyable!
GRADES: PK-12 | FREE
Host a Math Night at the beginning of each school year or once a semester to keep families engaged and to get them familiar with what their children are learning. During these events parents learn:
- About the Eureka Math curriculum and what makes it different
- What to expect in the year ahead
- What resources are available to help them help their child at homework time
For the best results, we see teachers let children lead the session, something parents really enjoy.
