K - 5 Math Homework Helper

So that you can assist your child with Eureka Math homework problems, our selected curriculum is offering Homework Helpers for the first 40 days (approximately) of instruction for grades K through 5 as free PDF downloads. These helpers illustrate problems similar to those your child will be assigned in class and demonstrate the thinking required to tackle each problem. (These helpers don’t provide answers to your child’s specific homework problems, as we want the students to work the problem themselves.)

Homework Helper PDFs for the first 40 days of instruction will be posted as they become available. Homework Helpers are arranged in the same sequence as the student homework, making it easy for you to follow along with your child’s progress. Click on the grade to access the PDF.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students."


  • Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school. Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records. Schools may charge a fee for copies.
  • Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information.
  • Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions (34 CFR § 99.31):
  • State and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific State law.
  • Appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergencies; and
  • To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena; 
  • Accrediting organizations;
  • Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school;
  • Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student;
  • Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes;
  • Other schools to which a student is transferring;
  • School officials with legitimate educational interest;

Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" information such as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. However, schools must tell parents and eligible students about directory information and allow parents and eligible students a reasonable amount of time to request that the school not disclose directory information about them. Schools must notify parents and eligible students annually of their rights under FERPA. The actual means of notification (special letter, inclusion in a PTA bulletin, student handbook, or newspaper article) is left to the discretion of each school.
