"The only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics." Paul Halmos
Eureka Math may seem very different than the math classes you took in school or the way you learned math.
Today's world has many challenges and problems that need to be solved and our learners will be the ones who will have to solve these problems. Math has been traditionally taught as "math facts" and formulas. Students were taught to memorize math facts and one specific way of calculating or solving a math problem. The trouble with this type of instruction was that many of us never really understood the math we were doing. Today's learners are required to solve much more complex problems and they must understand the concepts and have numerous strategies for solving these problems. Building multiple strategies and deep understanding of numbers is how learners will become great problem solvers.
