Excel Math: TEKS Aligned and STAAR Ready

Excel Math is correlated to the new TEKS: Texas  Essential Knowledge and Skills.

Take a look at the correlations by grade level on our website: http://excelmath.com/downloads/state_stdsTX.html

Excel Math works for students at all levels because it is:

Continually Enhanced

We print Excel Math throughout the year so you always have the latest Student Lesson Sheets and Teacher Editions, unlike textbooks, which remain static.

 

A Perfect Transition to STAAR

Mathematical Processes
We are pleased, but not surprised, at how well our Excel Math materials correlate to Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills requirements.

Current test results will remain strong for students using Excel Math. At the same time, Excel Math will provide them with powerful support, in-depth practice, and frequent assessment for the move to STAAR.

Download the Grade 3 Mathematical Process Standards to see how the TEKS mathematical processes are woven into Excel Math lessons.  Click on the image at left to see how we include these Processes in the tasks and activities your Grade 3 students will complete throughout the year. 

(Check back each week for the other grade levels.)

A Powerful Tool Preparing Students for STAAR Testing

Excel Math includes weekly and quarterly assessment along with a proven spiraling process and spaced repetition of concepts. With Excel Math, students learn higher-order thinking skills beyond what is required of TEKS.
Our correlations allow you to focus on the new TEKS standards or go even further, with additional concepts we provide.
