Take advantage of new resources to assist teachers and parents in transitioning to the revised mathematics TEKS. I highly recommend taking advantage of the free TEA Interactive Math Glossary.
• Gain interactive manipulatives (click on box plot interactive link) and videos to help students understand new vocabulary.
• Use the non-examples to help you, your team and students understand and brainstorm student misconceptions.
• Plan your lessons to use in class or when team planning.
• Use the editable or printable Frayer Model Template.
• Take away a list of glossary terms not yet in the Interactive Math Glossary. (The TEA will be adding new terms to the Interactive Math Glossary this semester.)
With the Interactive Glossary, the Frayer Model Template and a list of all the glossary definition, you’ve got what you need to plan for success.
