TXRCFP: Texas Response to Curriculum Focal Points for K-8 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.

###
Introduction to Plate Tectonics

This resource is intended to use for Tier I classroom instruction.

###
Human Impact

This resource can be used, in conjunction with best practices, for Tier I classroom instruction.

###
Vertical Alignment Charts for Revised Mathematics TEKS

This resource provides vertical alignment charts for the revised mathematics TEKS.

###
Exploring the Ratio of Circumference to Diameter

This activity provides an opportunity for students to explore the ratio of the circumference of its circle to the length of its diameter in order to generalize the ratio for pi.

###
Texas Performance Standards Project

These videos introduce the Texas Performance Standards Project (TPSP), a resource for providing differentiated instruction to gifted/talented (G/T) students.

###
Converting Between Measurement Systems

Given a real-world situation with measurements in either metric/SI or customary units, the student will solve a problem requiring them to convert from one system to the other.

###
Interactive Math Glossary

###
Evaluating Methods of Sampling from a Set of Data

Given a problem situation, the student will evaluate a method of sampling to determine the validity of an inference made from the set of data.

###
Dichotomous Keys Murder Mystery

A resource for the instruction of (7)(11)(A) involving the use of dichotomous keys for identification.

###
Using Multiplication by a Constant Factor

Given problems involving proportional relationships, the student will use multiplication by a constant factor to solve the problems.

###
Predicting, Finding, and Justifying Data from a Table

Given data in table form, the student will use the data table to interpret solutions to problems.

###
Tone is in the Fear of the Beholder: Reading and Writing Using Multimodal Mentor Texts

This resource is a demonstration lesson presented at the 2014 Write for Texas Summer Institute. It provides a snapshot of a four to five week unit that engages students in the reading and writing workshop model.

###
Teaching Sentence Skills

This resource series is designed to enhance teachers' knowledge and skill so they can effectively teach grammar in context. Teaching grammar in context uses powerful models like sentences within mentor texts, rather than marking errors and correcting weak or wrong examples.

###
Estimating and Finding Solutions: Percents

Given problem situations involving percents, the student will estimate and find solutions to the problems.

###
Defining Similarity

Given similar figures, the student will use critical attributes to define similarity.

###
Making Inferences and Convincing Arguments about Samples and Populations

Given problem situations that include given or collected data, the student will analyze the data and make inferences and convincing arguments based on the data.

###
Selecting and Using Appropriate Operations to Solve Problems

Given problem situations involving rational numbers, the student will select and use appropriate methods to solve the problems.

###
Estimating and Finding Solutions to Problems Involving Similarity and Rates

Given application problems involving similarity and rates, the student will estimate and determine the solutions to the problems.

###
Generating Similar Figures Using Dilations

Given a figure, the student will identify the scale factor used for a dilation, and use a dilation by a scale factor, including enlargements and reductions, to generate similar figures.
