There are four modules in the Introduction to the Revised Mathematics TEKS professional development series. Each module is approximately three hours. Each module gives you the opportunity to focus on the TEKS for one of the following high school mathematics courses: Algebra I, Geometry, or Algebra II.

Be sure to download the journal below for your high school mathematics course.

This is the first of four modules to introduce the revised mathematics TEKS. The four modules are

  • The Revised Math TEKS (Grades 9–12) with Supporting Documents,
  • Applying the Mathematical Process Standards,
  • Completing the Gap Analysis, and
  • Achieving Fluency and Proficiency.

How Do You Look at Things?

How do you look at things?

  • A forest view?
  • A tree view?
  • A leaf view?

Rather than looking at the trees and the leaves, today we will take the "forest view" to explore strategies and procedures that can be used in your district or on your campus.
