Great Minds was founded in 2007 by a group of teachers and education leaders with the goal of developing a content rich and knowledge-based education for all American schoolchildren. The core belief at Great Minds is that every child is capable of greatness, and our mission is to ensure that all students have access to a quality education and the full range of liberal arts and sciences. To achieve this goal, we continue to bring teachers and scholars together to craft exemplary instructional materials that inspire joy in teaching and learning. Eureka Math™, Wit & Wisdom®, and PhD Science™, all give school teachers the materials and instructional supports they need to take students beyond rote learning to provide a deeper, more complete understanding of the humanities, mathematics, and the sciences.
Great Minds curricula is being used with great success in schools across the nation and students and teachers in every corner of our country have felt the impact of our work. True to our founding, we seek to do this work with the collaboration of a team of teacher-writers who can share their passion, their knowledge, and their expertise to create curriculum that is content-rich, knowledge-based, and invites students to think deeply about the world around them.
