A new curriculum for
a new day

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 true understanding lesson by lesson and year after year.

The team of teachers and mathematicians who wrote Eureka Math took great care to present mathematics in a logical progression from PK through Grade 12. This coherent approach allows teachers to know what incoming students already have learned and ensures that students are prepared for what comes next. When implemented faithfully, Eureka Math will dramatically reduce gaps in student learning, instill persistence in problem solving, and prepare students to understand advanced math.

Eureka Math serves teachers, administrators, parents, and students with a comprehensive suite of innovative curriculum, in-depth professional development, books, and support materials for everyone involved.

What Eureka Math is and is not

Using real-world problems Not endless exercises without context
Understanding why Not isolated memorization
Explaining your reasoning Not working alone
Doing math in your head Not relying on a calculator

“Aligned” is not enough

While many curricula and textbooks on the market today describe themselves as being “aligned” with the new standards, the content is virtually unchanged from the past. Publishers have merely associated elements of the outdated content with various new standards. Eureka Math was developed specifically to meet the new standards.

Eureka Math is truly different

Eureka Math offers a comprehensive suite of curriculum, in-depth professional development, texts, tools, and support materials that work together to provide teachers, parents, and students with a cohesive approach to the ultimate goal: students who are not merely literate, but fluent, in mathematics.

Better design yields better results

It’s not enough for students to know the process for solving a problem; they need to understand why that process works so they can use it anytime. Teaching mathematics as a story, Eureka Math builds students’ knowledge logically and thoroughly to help them achieve deep understanding. While this approach is unfamiliar to those of us who grew up memorizing mathematical facts and formulas, it has been tested and proven to be the most successful method in the world.

How we’re making a difference

The advantages of Eureka Math are more than theoretical. These real-world success stories explain how educators have successfully integrated our content-rich curriculum into their classrooms. Have a story to share? Please contact us at success@greatminds.net.

Who We Are

A better approach

As a non-profit organization, our focus is on ensuring that all students receive a content-rich education. Instead of rote memorization of formulas, we believe in teaching the “story” of math through expertly crafted lessons that are carefully sequenced from PK through Grade 12. Eureka Math is based on a theory of teaching that has been proven to work in this nation and abroad.

Our method

We created Eureka Math to meet the new levels of rigor and instructional shifts necessary for today’s math classroom. The instructional shifts are most evident in the fluency, application, concept development, and debrief sections that characterize lessons in the Grades PK–5 of Eureka Math. Similarly, the focus in the middle and high school grades on problem sets, exploration, Socratic discussion, and modeling fosters deep conceptual understanding.

Eureka Math is based on a theory of teaching 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,” which is followed by “A Story of Ratios” in middle school and “A Story of Functions” in high school. Mathematical concepts flow logically from one to the next in this curriculum.

The sequencing has been joined with methods of instruction that drive student understanding beyond process to deep mastery of mathematical concepts.

Supportive, not prescriptive

As extensive as the resources are in Eureka Math, we believe in the ability of teachers and in their central, irreplaceable role in shaping the classroom experience. To support and facilitate that important work, Eureka Math includes the following:

  • Scaffolding hints to help teachers support Response to Intervention (RTI).
  • Professional development so teachers can study the curriculum and learn how to make the most of the material.
  • Consistent lesson rhythms for Grades PK–5, allowing teachers to focus energy on engaging students in the mathematical story.
  • Convenient interactivity to permit progressions-based search functionality for easy navigation between standards and related lessons, linking all lessons in a particular standards strand or mathematical progression, and learning trajectory. This functionality also helps teachers identify and remediate gaps in prerequisite knowledge, implement RTI tiers, and provide support for students at a variety of levels.

A firm foundation

The material upon which Eureka Math is based was originally created through a partnership with the New York State Education Department. Their expert review team, including renowned mathematicians who helped write the new standards, progressions, and the much-touted “Publisher’s Criteria,” strengthened an already rigorous development process.

Eureka, the original “aha”

On the Mediterranean island of Sicily, in the ancient Greek city of Syracuse, legend has it that a man was filling his bathtub for a warm, relaxing soak. But this would not turn out to be the soothing experience he had planned. As he stepped into the tub, water overflowed the rim and spilled to the floor. His weary eyes flew open as he thrust his hands up in the air and shouted. So great was his excitement that he reportedly ran naked out the door and down the street, yelling “Eureka!”

Translated from Ancient Greek, “Eureka” means “I found it.” The exuberant man was Archimedes, widely regarded as the greatest mathematician in antiquity. Just what had he discovered? A solution to a challenge posed by none other than the King of Syracuse.

The king had asked Archimedes to determine if a crown created for a temple by a local goldsmith was, in fact, pure gold. Or had the goldsmith substituted silver in the center of the crown and kept some of the king’s gold for himself? Because the crown was sacred, Archimedes had to determine its contents without damaging it.

As he stepped into his tub and saw the water displaced by his body, Archimedes realized that he could apply the same principle to check the purity of the crown. First, he put an amount of pure gold equal to the weight of the crown in a bowl of water and observed that the water rose to the rim. Then he removed the pure gold and placed the crown in the bowl. Gold is more dense than silver. If the goldsmith had used silver within the crown, the increased volume of the crown would cause the water to overflow.

Archimedes’ moment of discovery inspired us to create superior mathematics curriculum materials so that you can help students experience their own aha moments.
