The Eureka math curriculum was created by Great Minds, a nonprofit that brought teachers and experts to craft a program based on the world’s most successful math programs. Eureka was built are the core principal that students need to know more then just what works when solving a problem – they need to understand why it works.
The curriculum goes beyond facts and formulas, teaching students to think about math conceptually. This helps students become not merely literate, but fluent in mathematics.
Topic-level tip sheets will be sent home for each unit to explain math strategies and models, provide key vocabulary, sample problems, and links to useful videos. Individual lesson practice pages will be sent home as well.
