Eureka Math (also known as EngageNY) was once owned by the nonprofit, Common Core, Inc., which is now the nonprofit, Great Minds, Inc. If you click thiscommoncore.org link, it will redirect you to greatminds.org.
The Great Minds website has rewritten its history to remove any trace of its former identity as Common Core, Inc. However, the Common Core, Inc., history is archivedhere.
The nonprofit, Common Core, Inc., predated the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Whereas CCSS did not originate in connection to Common Core, Inc., the nonprofit, Common Core, Inc., AKA Great Minds, Inc., it is proud to note that its products are Common Core-aligned:
ABOUT GREAT MINDSA group of education leaders founded the non-profit Great Minds in 2007 to define and encourage content-rich comprehensive education for all American schoolchildren. In pursuit of that mission, Great Minds brings schoolteachers together in collaboration with scholars to craft exemplary instructional materials and share them with the field. Great Minds’ Eureka Math curriculum has won accolades at the state and national levels, and is the only comprehensive math curriculum aligned to the Common Core State Standards at every grade. The non-profit also just released Wit & Wisdom, a new English curriculum that taps the power of literature, history and science to meet the expectations of the new standards.
Great Minds even brags that Eureka Math/EngageNY is featured on David Coleman’s Student Achievement Partners (SAP) website. (Coleman and his SAP were at the center of CCSS development.):
National ImpactEureka Math is the only curriculum found by EdReports.org to be fully aligned to the standards for all grades, K–8.

The version of the curriculum on EngageNY.org has been downloaded 13.5 million times, reaching every state in the nation.
