Over the next few weeks, I will go over everything you need to know about teaching this curriculum successfully. Hopefully, this will help eliminate some of that learning curve for you and you will become one of the teachers who loves the curriculum, like me!
Overview of Eureka Curriculum
First, let’s break down the components of the Eureka curriculum so you know exactly what’s included in the curriculum and how you can best utilize it.
The curriculum is broken down into several different modules each covering a different math topic for your grade level. It is important to note that the progression of the topics covered is research-based and build upon one another. Therefore, Eureka Math works best when the modules are completed in order.
Each module comes with a teacher manual, a student workbook, and student fluency practice. If you are using the physical workbooks, these will each be found in separate books that may include several modules in one. If you are using the online PDF version, these are each found in separate files for each module. Here’s what you can expect to find in each of these:
The Teacher Edition of each module is what you as the teacher will primarily use to teach your lessons. Here is what you can expect to find in the TE for each module:
Student Workbooks and Fluency
Where you will find the various student pages depends on whether you have physical books or not, but the same components are available to you either way. We will go into more detail about each of these components in a later blog post, but for now, here is a quick overview of the student resources included with each module:
