A resource to help clarify mathematics content and processes that students should know and be able to do in each grade level or course, and to provide links between the state curriculum standards (TEKS), classroom instruction, and assessment. This resource can be used to incorporate ongoing classroom assessment as part of instruction, so teachers can be confident that their students understand and can do what is required in the TEKS and what will be assessed on the TAKS.
For each student expectation in the mathematics TEKS, Clarifying Activities with Assessment Connections provide a classroom activity with sample questioning and observation suggestions that educators can use to understand a student's mathematical thinking.
Clarifying Activities with Assessment Connections are each connected to released TAKS items and answer the following questions:
Models of lessons that teachers can implement in their classroom. Clarifying Lessons combine multiple TEKS statements and may use several Clarifying Activities in one lesson. This set of Clarifying Lessons does not cover all of the grade-level or course TEKS. Clarifying Lessons answer the following questions:
A TEKS-based resource for teachers and curriculum designers to use for planning and instruction to sequence and pace mathematics content delivery for the school year. The scope and sequence is aligned to the TEKS, TAKS, Dana Center resources, and key Topics in Mathematics.
