Eureka was built around the core
principle that students need to know more than just what works
when solving a problem—they need to understand why it works.
The curriculum goes beyond facts and formulas, teaching
students to think about math conceptually. This helps students
become not merely literate, but fluent in mathematics.
How It Works
Eureka Math is designed to give students a deeper
understanding of mathematics. One way this is accomplished
is by following a logical progression from concrete to
pictorial to abstract. To start, students learn mathematical
concepts using actual objects or situations. From there,
they transition into using pictures or models, such as tape
diagrams, ten frames, and number bonds. Once they “see”
what’s happening, they use symbols and standard algorithms
because they now understand what makes those processes
The Eureka curriculum is presented as a cohesive story that
f lows logically from grades PK–12. This approach helps
students build on what they’ve learned year after year, ensuring
that they’re prepared for the challenges of today and tomorrow.
