Eureka Math

Parent Tips from Great Minds--Read on to learn a little bit about Eureka Math, the creators of A Story of Units:

 

Eureka Math is a complete, PreK–12 curriculum and professional development platform. It follows the focus and coherence of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and carefully sequences the progression of mathematical ideas into expertly crafted instructional modules. This curriculum is distinguished not only by its adherence to the CCSS; it is also based on a theory of teaching math that is proven to work. That theory posits that mathematical knowledge is conveyed most effectively when it is taught in a sequence that follows the “story” of mathematics itself. This is why we call the elementary portion of Eureka Math "A Story of Units." The sequencing has been joined with successful methods of instruction that have been used in this nation and abroad. These methods drive student understanding beyond process and into deep mastery of mathematical concepts. The goal of Eureka Math is to produce students who are not merely literate, but fluent, in mathematics. Your student has an exciting year ahead, discovering the story of mathematics!
