Great Minds, the creator of the Eureka Math/EngageNY Math curriculum, has teamed up with Relay Graduate School of Education (Relay) to launch a training for third grade teachers using the curriculum. The pilot is designed for teachers who are either new to the curriculum or who are experienced with the curriculum and interested in deepening their understanding.
