The new educational standards most states recently adopted emphasize the need for students to engage in collaborative discussions—a skill they’ll need in college and the workforce. At the same time, America’s teachers also are working together more effectively and frequently.
Collaboration can greatly improve teaching and learning. But all too often, teachers have worked in silos, missing critical opportunities to exchange ideas and learn from one another.

The Eureka Math team is very excited about our upcoming events at NCTM in Boston. It’s important to us that our exhibit booth represents who we really are – classroom teachers dedicated to providing children with rigorous, engaging mathematical experiences. In alignment with our philosophy, we have developed a plan that keeps students at the heart of our work. Our booth is designed to have the look and feel of a classroom; most importantly, groups of students will join us in the booth to participate in live […]
One of the things I most enjoy as part of the Eureka team is getting to know teachers and administrators who are using the Eureka Math curriculum. The enthusiasm and appreciation they often express is contagious, and it’s thrilling to hear their reports of students and teachers becoming better mathematicians each day.
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics 2015 conference in Boston next month is another great event where we look forward to making new connections with members of the Eureka community. More than 20 of […]
