How Great Minds’ Eureka Math helps you
Eureka Math is a complete, PreK–12 curriculum and professional development platform. It follows the focus and coherence of the Common Core State Standards and carefully sequences the mathematical progressions into expertly crafted instructional modules.
The new standards and progressions set the frame. But the instructional shifts that teachers must make to achieve the rigor contained in the CCSS-M is what shaped every aspect of the curriculum. Nowhere are the instructional shifts more evident than in the fluency, application, concept development, and debrief sections that characterize lessons in the PreK–5 grades of Eureka Math. Similarly, Eureka’s focus in the middle and high school grades on problem sets, exploration, Socratic discussion, and modeling helps students internalize the true meaning of coherence and fosters deep conceptual understanding.
Our curriculum is distinguished not only by its adherence to the CCSS. Eureka Math is 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," 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 have been proven to work, in this nation and abroad. These methods drive student understanding beyond process, to deep mastery of mathematical concepts. The goal of Eureka Math is to produce students who are not merely literate, but fluent, in mathematics.This is from the Great Minds website!
