A brief explanation of how to use the Topic Foundations aligned to the Eureka Math / EngageNY curriculum to provide strategic remediation for students throughout the school year.
Khan Academy has partnered with the Louisiana Department of Education to align our content to the Eureka Math/EngageNY math curriculum. This is is the most popular math curriculum used in the United States according to a recent RAND Corporation study.
To access our aligned resources, go to the Courses dropdown menu in the top left corner of your screen and select See all Math.
From the Math page you can view all Math courses including the courses aligned to the Eureka Math/EngageNY curriculum.
To help your students catch up on core skills from previous grades, we’ve created topic foundations for third to eighth grade math.
Topic foundations are the prerequisite skills students need to be successful in your course. By assigning topic foundations, you can patch up holes in student understanding and identify the most prominent learning gaps for more intensive remediation.
For example, Topic A of Module 1 in the sixth grade Eureka Math/EngageNY curriculum is about representing and reasoning about ratios.
Prior to sixth grade, students have likely made multiplicative comparisons, such as “Jose has five times as many blocks as Eduardo.” Understanding fractions as an extension of division is another important conceptual idea that allows students to understand ratios.
With that in mind, we have the following compilation of resources to help a student review and build their topic foundation for sixth grade content.
We encourage you to consider using topic foundations before an upcoming unit or at the beginning of a unit.
You can assign topic foundation content the same way as all other content. Review how to do that here.
Once students have finished their topic foundations, consider assigning our on-grade support resources.

- My son is in 9th grade, but is way behind. I believe the school has just pushed him forward. How do I find what math grade level is actually good for him? Do you have a placement test? I don't want to just start at third grade foundations if that is not what he needs.(3 votes)
- I can't assign topic foundations. I don't have any Assign button for Foundations - Eureka 7th grade Module 3.(1 vote)
