Student expectation statements introduced at
one grade level and not assessed will most likely
be tested the following year.
(3.11) Measurement. The student selects and
uses appropriate units and procedures
to measure length and area. The
student is expected to:
(B) Use linear measure to find the perimeter of a shape.
(7.9) The student solves application problems involving estimation and measurement. The student is expected to:
(A) Estimate measurement and solve application problems involving length (including perimeter and circumference), area, and volume.
G(b)(4) The student uses a variety of representations to describe geometric relationships and solve problems.
(A) The student selects an appropriate representation ([concrete], pictorial, graphical, verbal, or symbolic) in order to solve problems.
Critically reading and reflecting on TEKS statements
Motivate and involve all students, even those struggling with the content, in difficult mathematics problem solving on a daily basis. All students should be required to communicate and process mathematics from the conceptual to symbolic level.
Students are counting on you to help them meet the new graduation requirements in mathematics.
Embed math in real world contexts that are rich and engaging and lead to more math questions.
Incorporate on-going cumulative review into instruction every day.
Create a language-rich classroom.
Use every number as a chance to build number sense.
Draw pictures, create mental images, and foster visualization.
Build from charts, graphs, and tables.
Don’t leave out measurement.
Adapt strategies from what we know about teaching reading.
Minimize what is no longer important.
Create a thinking curriculum by asking questions.
