Eureka is one of the most widely adopted math curriculums in the country, so naturally, there are many resources available to help make you more successful with teaching this curriculum! Today I wanted to highlight a few of these resources for you.
Typically, the concept development starts with modeling, then moves to a more guided practice, and finally to independent practice. You will also notice that the problems tend to progress from easier to harder as the lesson continues.
Students may start out with reviewing a related skill that they have previously learned. The teacher will then demonstrate the new skill, talking through the process and asking questions as they go.
Now that you’ve mastered the fluency practice portion of Eureka lessons, we’ll talk about one of the next major components of the lesson - the Application Problem.
Eureka employs a 3 part strategy to solve word problems which students will use on the application problems. The 3 part strategy is Read, Draw, Write - or RDW.
We will take an in-depth look at each of these components so you can feel comfortable presenting each one to your class.
Yes, Eureka math lessons are jam-packed with information and probably more than you can squeeze into the 60 minute time-frame it lays out for you. Even if you have more than 60 minutes for your math block, you may still be wondering how to fit it all in. This is totally normal, and many teachers feel this way about the curriculum.
