    Instructional Resources

    These options are intended as additional supplemental resources to the districts’ and charters’ primary curricular resources and learning materials.

    Several high-quality online comprehensive instructional resources support remote learning, such as: 

    • Great Minds: Great Minds is sharing—free to anyone—recorded daily lessons in Grades K–12 of Eureka Math, K–8 of Wit & Wisdom (ELA), and 3–5 of PhD Science. These lessons will be delivered by Great Minds’ own teachers and will be viewable on any device. Schools that have them should make every effort to send students home with their Eureka Math student books, PhD Science Module 4 logbooks, and Wit & Wisdom workbooks and core texts, if available. In addition, go here for access to the full K-12 Eureka Math program, free of charge.
