Types of Motion
Students will distinguish between and/or interpret the types of motion.
Types of Science Investigations
Students will distinguish between descriptive, comparative, and experimental investigations.
Given investigation scenarios and lab procedures, students will identify independent variables, dependent variables, constants, and control groups.
Cell Homeostasis: Osmosis
The focus of this resource is cell homeostasis and, more specifically, osmosis. Students investigate the concept through a virtual lab, recording and analyzing data, creating sketches to represent vocabulary, and discovering the role of aquaporins in water transport through the cell membrane.
Kid2Kid: Determining the Meaning of Slope and Intercepts
Kid2Kid videos on determining the meaning of slope and intercepts in English and Spanish
Increasing and Decreasing Energy
This resource provides sample activities for teachers to use in helping students to identify and investigate the effects of increasing and decreasing amounts of light, heat, and sound energy on an object.
What’s Trending with the Elements?
This resource, aligned with Chemistry TEKS (5)(C), provides alternative or additional tier-one learning options for students using the periodic table to identify and explain trends.
Sedimentary Rocks and Fossil Fuels
A Tier 1 earth science instructional resource for grade 5.
Light: Reflection and Refraction
This is a tier I instructional resource to provide a scaffolded learning experience for TEKS (5)(6)(C).
Using Logical Reasoning to Prove Conjectures about Circles
Given conjectures about circles, the student will use deductive reasoning and counterexamples to prove or disprove the conjectures.
Generalizing Geometric Properties of Ratios in Similar Figures
Students will investigate patterns to make conjectures about geometric relationships and apply the definition of similarity, in terms of a dilation, to identify similar figures and their proportional sides and congruent corresponding angles.
Determining Area: Sectors of Circles
Students will use proportional reasoning to develop formulas to determine the area of sectors of circles. Students will then solve problems involving the area of sectors of circles.

Making Conjectures About Circles and Segments
Given examples of circles and the lines that intersect them, the student will use explorations and concrete models to formulate and test conjectures about the properties and relationships among the resulting segments.
Determining Area: Regular Polygons and Circles
The student will apply the formula for the area of regular polygons to solve problems.
Making Conjectures About Circles and Angles
Given examples of circles and the lines that intersect them, the student will use explorations and concrete models to formulate and test conjectures about the properties of and relationships among the resulting angles.
Domain and Range: Numerical Representations
Given a function in the form of a table, mapping diagram, and/or set of ordered pairs, the student will identify the domain and range using set notation, interval notation, or a verbal description as appropriate.
Solving Problems With Similar Figures
Given problem situations involving similar figures, the student will use ratios to solve the problems.
Transformations of Square Root and Rational Functions
Given a square root function or a rational function, the student will determine the effect on the graph when f(x) is replaced by af(x), f(x) + d, f(bx), and f(x - c) for specific positive and negative values.
Transformations of Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
Given an exponential or logarithmic function, the student will describe the effects of parameter changes.
