EUREKA MATH

Eureka Math is the most widely adopted math resource by teachers for good reason. It was written by teams of teachers in New York State where it began as the NY State Math Curriculum, EngageNY. Eureka Math supports the development of problem solving skills and asks students to defend their thoughts with mathematics and statistics. Eureka Math is both aligned to Illinois’ standards and Elmhurst’s overarching mathematics goals. It is also the most highly rated K-8 math resource according to rigorous third party reviews.
