Students will be able to demonstrate mastery over the 8th Grade TEKS.
8th Grade Math Curriculum TEKS-Aligned
Texas Teachers! This 8th grade math TEKS curriculum is the perfect solution for the busy 8th grade math teacher or the school with limited resources! This bundle is standards-based and designed specifically for the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (2014-2015 revision).
The curriculum is divided into 10 units with an additional unit to prepare for state testing. Additionally, you will receive spiral warm-ups, “I Can” statements, back to school review activities, and year-end assessments -- all directly aligned to the TEKS!
If you DO NOT teach in Texas, then please check out the 8th Grade Common Core State Standard Bundle. It is likely a better fit for you.
Each Unit Includes:
1. Teacher planning resources: Unit Overviews and Pacing Calendar
To ensure vertical alignment and create a cohesive content base, unit overviews provide you with a foundational understanding of where students are and where they need to go. Each unit overview offers teacher tips that address engagement ideas or student struggles to streamline your planning.
2. Classroom resources and activities: Guided Notes, Hands-On Activities, Independent Practice
The guided notes provide visuals and scaffold the concepts in such a way that students refer back to them -- a teacher’s dream! Real life application and problem solving strategies have been incorporated throughout the units to ensure that your students can apply the concepts.
July 2020 Digital Update: All files are available as a PDF, the unit test is editable in PPT, and the student handouts/homework/study guides have been converted to Google Slides™ for your convenience. The Google Slides™ do NOT have text boxes placed, but there is a video tutorial showing you how if you choose.
Each unit includes at least six hands-on activities to support cooperative learning, higher-level thinking skills, and student practice in a fun way! Teachers have commented that they love hearing their students using academic language and justifying their reasoning.
September 2020 Digital Update: 40 of the hands-on class activities have been converted to be paperless and digital through Google Slides™ and Google Forms. See more details of the curriculum update here.
3. Classroom Assessments: Editable Unit Tests, Self-Grading Google Form Test
Each unit includes at least one quiz and an editable unit test. This allows you to customize the unit test to meet the needs of your students.
All of the unit tests are available as a Google Form.
