Dear Parents, Guardians, and General Math Helpers Outside of the Classroom,

### Welcome to the Eureka math resources for CCSS students' helpers. Not all of these curated resources were created by us, but we have collected them for you so that you can get an idea of what your student's lessons focus on in class and help, if needed.

### If you have a student in school today, you probably learned the foundations of math in a very different way. You and I learned the art of "answer getting," and we were good at it. Well, some of us were...some of us needed the math knowledge about numbers that really wasn't taught in class. We were instructed to follow formulas (algorithms) and not ask, "Why?" Some of us picked up a working number sense over time as we got older and learned, by experience, in real world settings.

### Your children are now learning that number sense you learned as an adult in their classes today. What would the learning process look like if you taught kids how to think about math and not merely plug numbers into a formula? What would it look like to provide them with the skills to figure math out? Well, the learning process looks very different for our children than merely memorizing and getting answers. Of course thatâ€™s part of it, but not the foundation-building that is done in the beginning to understand the way math works.
