What is eMathinstruction?
eMATHinstruction (eMATH) makes teaching math a whole lot easier and learning math a whole lot more fun. We provide free lesson plans, videos and homework sets for middle and high school mathematics courses. Our standards-aligned, scaffolded curricula are easy to use, and save teachers time and energy. Premium content — including answer keys, assessments, exit tickets and more — is available through a paid yearly membership. We provide high quality materials, so teachers have time to focus on creative activities and individualized student support. Our fun and engaging videos provide reinforcement or instruction when synchronous learning is not possible.
eMATH was founded in 2008 by veteran mathematics teacher Kirk Weiler. Kirk started eMATH to share the resources he had created with other teachers who were constantly asking for extra materials to enrich their teaching. As a former engineer with a passion for mathematics in everyday life, Kirk makes math exciting, engaging, and understandable. What began as an accidental experiment has grown into a mission to make teaching easier and learning more fun.
How does eMATH make teaching easier?
We create high quality, carefully scaffolded curricula that are designed to build student confidence and mathematical skills. Each course contains free, ready-to-use lesson plans and homework sets. Each lesson has an accompanying full-length YouTube video, which can be used for asynchronous instruction, flipping, and content reinforcement. Our mission is to give teachers the standards-aligned complete curricula they need to teach so they have the time and energy to be creative and provide students with personalized attention.
How does eMATH make learning fun?
We meet students where they are. Today’s student has a smartphone in their pocket, access to infinite information at their fingertips, and they demand relevance. Kirk’s passion for math in the real world seeps into the problems he creates, giving students a deep connection to how math is applied in a myriad of real-life scenarios. Students truly connect to Kirk’s highly engaging videos, which are easily accessible through the eMATH website, YouTube channel, or lesson QR codes (scannable with any smartphone). When a student cannot quite remember how their teacher explained a concept in class, a refresher is just a couple of clicks away. We also provide support to and engage with students during live end-of-year review sessions and other fun events throughout the year. When a student stops Kirk on the street for a selfie, we know that we have succeeded in making math fun.

How does eMATH work with teachers and schools?
We are flexible in how we work with schools and do our best to cater to what schools need. We have worked with small rural school districts, large urban school districts, and everything in between. Each school has unique needs and manages their math curricula in different ways. eMATH curricula is designed to be flexible – use it in the way that best fits your needs.
Each complete curriculum is available for free, so It is entirely possible to use all eMATH lessons, homework sets, and videos without paying anything. For those who find value in the premium resources such as answer keys, assessments, exit tickets, and more, you may find it handy to purchase a membership. Course memberships are sold per teacher per year. Small schools may have only one Algebra I teacher, while larger schools may have 30. Purchase as many as you need and take advantage of our volume discounts. Teachers who teach multiple courses may require multiple membership; one for each course. Some schools may find value in ordering workbooks for their students and others may opt to download the materials and then print and photocopy them for students. Schools are not one-size-fits-all and neither are we.
