## Eureka Math

Eureka Math — also known as EngageNY — is a complete, PreK through 12 curriculum that carefully sequences the mathematical progressions into expertly crafted modules. Eureka Math connects math to the real world in ways that take the fear out of math and build student confidence—while helping students achieve true understanding lesson by lesson and year after year. The Glynn County School System elected to implement the Eureka Math Curriculum in Kindergarten and Grade 1 for the 2016-17 school year.* Implementation will occur in subsequent grade levels, one grade level at a time, continuing with Grade 4 in 2019-20. In addition, teachers in Grade 5 may choose to use Eureka Math as a resource to supplement the Georgia Department of Education Mathematics Frameworks.

### Eureka Math Parent Information by Grade Level:

Summary of Year - Kindergarten

Kindergarten mathematics is about (1) representing, relating, and operating on whole numbers, initially with sets of objects; and (2) describing shapes and space. More learning time in Kindergarten should be devoted to number than to other topics.

Key Areas of Focus for K-2:  Addition and subtraction—concepts, skills, and problem solving

Required Fluency:  K.OA.5 Add and subtract within 5.

Parent Tip Sheets Kindergarten

Summary of Year - Grade 1

First Grade mathematics is about (1) developing understanding of addition, subtraction, and strategies for addition and subtraction within 20; (2) developing understanding of whole number relationships and place value, including grouping in tens and ones; (3) developing understanding of linear measurement and measuring lengths as iterating length units; and (4) reasoning about attributes of, and composing and decomposing geometric shapes.

Key Areas of Focus for K-2:  Addition and subtraction—concepts, skills, and problem solving

Required Fluency:  1.OA.6 Add and subtract within 10.

Summary of Year - Grade 2

Second Grade mathematics is about (1) extending understanding of base-ten notation; (2) building fluency with addition and subtraction; (3) using standard units of measure; and (4) describing and analyzing shapes.

Key Areas of Focus for K-2:  Addition and subtraction—concepts, skills, and problem solving

Required Fluency:   2.OA.2 Add and subtract within 20.

2.NBT.5 Add and subtract within 100.

Summary of Year - Grade 3

Grade 3 mathematics is about (1) developing understanding of multiplication and division and strategies for multiplication and division within 100; (2) developing understanding of fractions, especially unit fractions (fractions with a numerator of 1); (3) developing understanding of the structure of rectangular arrays and of area; and (4) describing and analyzing two-dimensional shapes.

Key Areas of Focus for 3–5: Multiplication and division of whole numbers and fractions—concepts, skills, and problem solving

Required Fluency:  3.OA.7 Multiply and divide within 100.

3.NBT.2 Add and subtract within 1000.

Summary of Year - Grade 4

Grade 4 mathematics is about (1) developing understanding and fluency with multi-digit multiplication, and developing understanding of dividing to find quotients involving multi-digit dividends; (2) developing an understanding of fraction equivalence, addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, and multiplication of fractions by whole numbers; and (3) understanding that geometric figures can be analyzed and classified based on their properties, such as having parallel sides, perpendicular sides, particular angle measures, and symmetry.

Key Areas of Focus for 3–5: Multiplication and division of whole numbers and fractions—concepts, skills, and problem solving

Required Fluency:  4.NBT.4 Add and subtract within 1,000,000.

## AIMS

### Achieving Individual Mathematics Success

Utilized at the elementary level in Grade 5 AIMS are locally developed, five-minute tests that provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate fluency in computation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division). Problems are grade-level appropriate and aligned with the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). These quick assessments help students develop and maintain essential basic skills. Individual school and overall district averages are reported to Assessment and Accountability, where the data is presented in bar graphs for comparison.

Beginning with AIMS III, Grade 5 students who have earned 100% on at least two previous AIMS, will engage in a more challenging version of AIMS, identified as AIMS PLUS.
