Using Linear Equations to Count Pecans
Students will write linear equations in pointslope form given two points via a verbal description.
Place Value Party
In learning stations, students prepare for a birthday party by using their knowledge of place value to compose, decompose, and represent numbers using standard, word, and expanded forms.
Telling Time to the Minute
The lesson requires students to match times to the nearest fiveminute interval using an analog clock, digital clock, and time written in words. Students will sing a song, show and write the time to the nearest minute, and tell time using analog watches.
Cooking Up Word Problems
Students rotate through four stations, collaboratively utilizing different strategies and manipulatives to analyze, explore, solve, and generate realworld culinary problem situations.
Are You in Your Place?
Students will be able to use concrete and pictorial models to compose and decompose numbers with place value.
Step Into the Problem: A Strategy for Visualizing a Math Problem
Teachers will show students a tool to help them understand a problem situation. The tool called Step into the Problem, will walk students through the steps of comprehending a problem: Read the problem, Turn and Talk, Act it Out, Notice and Wonder, and Reflect. Students will be given a problem situation and will go through the steps to show that they understand the problem situation.
Shop 'til You Drop
Students will identify the value of coins and determine the total value of a group of coins to select items to purchase from a given list.
Ravaged Robot
Students will learn the concept of area by building a robot using manipulatives and transferring the representation onto grid paper. Then, students will determine the area of each designated body part on their think sheet.
Comparing Fractional Parts
Students will participate in wholegroup and smallgroup instruction as they collaborate and use manipulatives, visuals, and handson activities to explore fractional parts. Ultimately, students will understand that when dividing a whole into fractions, the smaller the fractional part, the greater the number of parts, and the larger the part, the fewer the number of parts.

TXRCFP: Texas Response to Curriculum Focal Points for K8 Mathematics Revised 2013
The Texas Response to Curriculum Focal Points Revised 2013 was created from the 2012 revision of the TEKS as a guide for implementation of effective mathematics instruction by identifying critical areas of content at each grade level.
Vertical Alignment Charts for Revised Mathematics TEKS
This resource provides vertical alignment charts for the revised mathematics TEKS.
Modeling Addition and Subtraction of TwoDigit Numbers
In this activity students will model addition and subtraction of twodigit numbers.
Kid2Kid: Determining the Meaning of Slope and Intercepts
Kid2Kid videos on determining the meaning of slope and intercepts in English and Spanish
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.
