There are four modules in the Introduction to the Revised Mathematics TEKS professional development. Each module is approximately three hours. Each module has three grade bands, each focusing on the TEKS for those grades.

Be sure to download the journal packet below for your grade band.

  • Grades K-2
  • Grades 3-5
  • Grades 6-8

This module was developed prior to the implementation of the revised TEKS. The emphasis of the module should be on the student learning gaps rather than the differences between the revised TEKS and the previous version of the math TEKS.

This is the third of four modules to introduce the revised Mathematics TEKS. The four modules are

Two modules reflect the process standards. Three modules reflect focused discussions of mathematics topics within each grade band.

What is an amplified instructional task?
An amplified instructional task uses connections to the focal points to take an existing instructional task and amplify it to provide students with multiple connections to the mathematics. The goal in amplifying instructional tasks is not to necessarily "turn the volume all the way up," but rather to turn it up "one or two levels."

What is the Project Share Gateway?
The Project Share Gateway is designed to provide faster, easier access to online resources for educators, students, parents, and community members. Use the Project Share Gateway to search for resources by student expectations (SEs) as listed in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Search results will provide instant access to videos, interactives, links to other educational sites, online courses, and other instructional resources.
What year is the implementation of the revised TEKS (2012)?
The mathematics TEKS adopted in 2012 are scheduled to be implemented in the 2014-2015 school year in grades K - 8.
