TEA Documents for Revised (2012) TEKS

Currently, high school math educators are preparing to implement the first year of the Revised (2012) TEKS while K-8 math educators are preparing to wrap up their first year with these new standards.

Whether you teach elementary or secondary, a strong understanding of the TEKS is important when designing learning experiences.  The following documents from TEA support educators' understanding of the Revised (2012) Math TEKS and are useful tools in planning:

1.  Side-by-Side TEKS Comparison Documents

These documents present a side-by-side comparison of the previous TEKS and the revised mathematics TEKS for kindergarten through high school courses. 

2.  TEKS with "Such As" Statements

This document contains the “such as” statements that were included in the review committees’ final recommendations for revisions to the mathematics Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Such as statements are possible illustrative examples and are not required to be included in instruction in the TEKS. This document is intended to serve as a resource for teachers in designing instruction for the revised mathematics TEKS.
