Eureka Math was developed by a team of teachers and mathematicians who took great care to present mathematics in a logical progression and to align lessons with the mathematic standards for grades K-8. Eureka Math can reduce gaps in student learning, instill persistence in problem solving and prepare students to understand advanced math concepts.
It’s not enough for students to know the process for solving a problem; they need to understand why the process works. Eureka Math connects math to the real world in ways that take the fear out of math and build student confidence, while helping students achieve understanding, lesson by lesson and year after year.
The vocabulary and processes are slightly different than many of us learned in school, but they build a better conceptual understanding and help students become proficient in the skills and problem solving needed in mathematics.
