15 REVISED MATH TEKS Side-by-Side Documents (already out) Available for Math Models, AQR, and Precalculus Vertical Alignment Charts (coming soon) Grades 5 – 6 – 7 – 8 - Algebra I - Algebra II Grades 5 – 6 – Geometry

16 ONTRACK New lessons for grades 7 and 8 are in review Grade 8 lessons that were available prior to the implementation of the revised TEKS will be labeled to show the alignment of the revised TEKS Grade 6 lessons are in development

22 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Can a district average both semester grades for a final grade? If district policy allows it, the semester grades of one course can be averaged for a final grade. If the semester grades are from different courses, they cannot be averaged for a final grade. Will Mathematical Models with Applications be available for the school year? Yes

23 TEA GRANT OPPORTUNITY Professional Development Partnerships for Advanced Math and Science Courses The purpose is to implement programs that give high-need local education agencies (LEAs) and their campuses opportunities to increase teacher content knowledge in advanced math and science courses such that teachers are highly qualified to teach a variety of advanced courses and therefore allowing the campuses to offer more endorsement areas to students.

24 TEA GRANT OPPORTUNITY Professional Development Partnerships for Advanced Math and Science Courses  Eligible partnership is required between an engineering, mathematics, and/or science department of an institution of higher education and at least one high-need LEA  Application deadline -April 9, 2015  Maximum funding per grant -$135,000

25 TEA CONTACT INFORMATION Curriculum Division James Slack Statewide Mathematics Coordinator Jo Ann Bilderback Math/Science Manager

26 ASSESSMENT UPDATE FROM TEA

27 STAAR SAMPLE MATH QUESTIONS Some examples of questions from the 2014 STAAR released tests that align with the new curriculum are provided. Sign up to be invited to our educator committees

28 IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NEW STAAR MATHEMATICS Changes to the STAAR mathematics assessments are based on recommendations from educator advisory committees. These changes are reflected in multiple documents on the STAAR Mathematics Resources webpage: math/. math/ New assessed curriculum documents New blueprints New reference materials New griddable questions document New process codes document New calculator policy

29 IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NEW STAAR MATHEMATICS Additional changes to the STAAR mathematics assessments are still to come. These changes include: New specific performance level descriptors New performance standards

30 NEW CALCULATOR REQUIREMENT Starting in spring 2015, a graphing calculator is required for each student taking the STAAR grade 8 mathematics assessment. It can be a traditional handheld graphing calculator. It can be a graphing calculator application on a tablet (trial basis for spring 2015) A graphing calculator is still required for each student taking the STAAR Algebra I assessment. A traditional handheld graphing calculator is required for both paper and online administrations.
