MATH

Engage in the Mathematical Practices: Strategies to Build Numeracy and Literacy with K-5 Learners by Solution Tree, 2016. "Sitting and watching a teacher explain and demonstrate procedures and steps is like learning how to play a sport by watching a video. Mathematics learning is an active process in which students builds his/her own mathematical knowledge from personal experiences, coupled with feedback from peers, teachers and other adults, and themselves (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2014)".


We will be receiving this resource in the fall!

TXAIR

TXAIR

Teachers and administrators can now learn more about the TExas Achievement Items Repository (tTxAIR) system with the TxAIR video tutorials, now available on the TExas Gateway. The Tx AIR system allows teachers to sign-up to access the TEKS-aligned assessments for math and science (grades 3-8). We wanted to share the above link with teachers that teach math/science so you can set up an account (it's free) and start accessing some tutoring materials and assessment bank items.
