Eureka Math is a holistic PreK through 12 curriculum that carefully sequences mathematical progressions into expertly crafted modules, making math a joy to teach and learn.
Eureka Math is a standard Core-aligned curriculum published by Great Minds Inc. It equates
mathematical concepts to stories with a goal to develop conceptual understanding. Like
Common Core, Eureka Math encourages students to use different mental strategies to solve
problems and focus on the process rather than the answer.
This is quite different from traditional math, taught as formulas and “facts.” Traditional math
involves memorizing facts and a rigid manner of solving and calculating math problems. The
problem with this form of instruction is that many students do not understand math.
Learners have higher expectations today than in the past. The current assessments and math
standards require learners to solve more complex problems. As such, your child must
understand different strategies to solve varying complex problems. Memorizing facts may not
help your child solve the complex issues they come across in assessments and life.

Why Eureka Math?
Eureka Math is the best solution for today’s learners due to its boosting of conceptual understanding. It prepares students to be problem-solvers and thinkers and understand math.
Unlike the traditional math taught as formulas and “math facts,” Eureka Math was introduced to improve math understanding from K-12th grade. Eureka math allows students to be great problem-solvers by helping them build multiple strategies and build a better understanding of math.
We understand that what your child is doing through the Eureka Math method may seem strange, and you may not know what they are doing. You can help them to gain more understanding of this math approach by enrolling them for tuition. At Kids on the Yard, we provide your child an in-depth professional development, learning materials, and a community of support on Eureka Math.
Our Eureka Math tutors will teach and assist your child in getting an in-depth understanding of the Eureka Math curriculum for their grade level. We cover topics in modules that your child could need more clarification on to proceed to the next topic successfully. We are determined to help them be excellent problem-solvers and thinkers rather than just get answers.
