Great Minds has designed a range of professional development resources to support schools and districts in their new or continuing implementation of Eureka Math. Created by our team of teacher–writers, these resources demonstrate the same careful attention to coherence that characterizes the curriculum as a whole.

 

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SEQUENCE

The Eureka Math team has crafted a multiyear sequence of professional development to support educators. We recommend that early implementers participate in foundational sessions—the critical coursework that anyone implementing Eureka Math should experience. Seasoned practitioners who have completed these foundational courses and want to pursue more advanced sessions should register for sustaining courses that are designed to strengthen existing implementations and deepen understanding of the curriculum.

INstitutes

We host multiday Institutes across the country throughout the school year. Institutes sessions are led by a team of educator facilitators who have acquired deep expertise in the curriculum through their local implementation. This fall we will be hosting institutes through the country. Click the green button below for more information on dates and locations.

 

 

on-Demand

The Eureka Digital Suite and Teacher Resource Pack provide educators with on-demand support such as pacing guides, curriculum maps, and lesson specific videos to help with daily instruction. You can access your resources here.

oN-Site

A group of local educators gather in their districts to collaborate with our trainers. The district can select a session from our Institute offerings or from our coaching series (see below).

 

Sessions

Lead Eureka Math (Administrators)

Grade Band: K-12

Session Agenda

This two-day session is designed for administrators. It is a balance of study, experiential learning, analysis, and practice. The session covers important topics that will help administrators support successful implementations of Eureka Math. It is targeted for newer adoptions but still beneficial for existing users.

Launch Eureka Math

Grade Bands: K-5, 6-12

Grades K-5 Session Agenda
Grades 6-12 Session Agenda

This session prepares new users to implement Eureka Math successfully. Educators explore the curriculum to understand how the learning design and lessons build a comprehensive and coherent understanding of mathematics.

Focus on Fluency

Grade Bands: K-5, 6-8

Grades K-5 Session Agenda
Grades 6-8 Session Agenda

In this session, educators spend most of their time practicing fluency exercises. Participants learn more about the curriculum's instructional tools that support students' fluency.

Preparation & Customization

Grade Bands: K-5, 6-12

Grades K-5 Session Agenda
Grades 6-12 Session Agenda

The purpose of this full-day session is threefold: to empower teachers to discern the decisions inherent in each Eureka Math lesson, to study the curriculum's teaching sequences, and to prepare teachers to customize lessons to meet the needs of their students.

Major Work of The Grade

Grade Bands: K-2, 3-5, 6-8

Grades K-2 Session Agenda
Grades 3-5 Session Agenda
Grades 6-8 Session Agenda

Educators already implementing the curriculum deepen their understanding of the fundamental mathematics instruction within and across grade bands. Participants study Problem Sets, analyze teaching sequences, deliver lesson segments, practice fluency activities, and model with mathematics.

Solving Word Problems

Grade Bands: K-2, 3-5, 6-8

Grades K-2 Session Agenda
Grades 3-5 Session Agenda
Grades 6-8 Session Agenda

In this session, participants learn how to effectively model and teach word problems by using math drawings. The study and practice of solving word problems further reveals the coherence of the curriculum and how this mathematical model supports student learning across the grades.

ON-SITE COACHING

Grade Bands: All Grades

On-site coaching provides an opportunity for a large group of district educators to collaborate with our trainers. Choose from a selected set of topics, including guided observations and sample lessons.
