TEKS Alignment

ST Math aligns with the TEKS to ensure Texas students develop deep, conceptual understanding of math concepts to equip them for the challenges of the 21st century. Below is a small sample of ST Math puzzles that were designed to meet the rigorous demands of the Texas math standards.

 

Grade K
Numbers & Operations: K.3.A


Model the action of joining to represent addition and the action of seperating to represent subtraction.
Grade K ST Math Puzzles Aligned to TEKS Math Standard

This puzzle asks students to model addition and subtraction by joining and separating birds on a telephone line. Students use the manipulative to find the total number of birds.

Grade 2
Numbers & Operations: 2.6.B


Model, create, and describe contextual division situations in which a set of concrete objects is separated into equivalent sets.
Grade 2 ST Math Puzzles Aligned to TEKS Math Standard

In this example, the student has determined that if each purple monster eats 2 pears, as shown by the rate in the top left corner, than 8 pears should be seperated equally to feed 4 purple monsters.

Grade 4
Numbers & Operations: 4.3.E


Represent and solve addition and subtraction of fractions with equal denominators using objects and pictorial models that build to the number line and properties of operations.
Grade 4 ST Math Puzzles Aligned to TEKS Math Standard

This puzzle asks students to match a collection of fractions represented with a circular model to a single point on the number line. The blue pieces represent positive numbers, the red indicates a negative number.

Grade 7
Expressions & Equations: 7.10.B


Represent solutions for one-variable, two-step equations and inequalities on number lines.
Grade 7 ST Math Puzzles Aligned to TEKS Math Standard

In this example, the student must find the value of variable “a”. This two-step equation, 4 + 3a = 7, is represented on a number line.

"Teachers have been able to see how math concepts can be modeled conceptually through ST Math games. There have been many occasions when I am collaborating with teachers about a math concept and we bring up specific ST Math games that show the math conceptually. We discuss how we can use them as a resource for both whole group and individual student instruction."
Bruce Simpson, Math Curriculum Coach
Salt Lake City School District
"I teach in a high-poverty, low-performing school.After just one year our school was able to go from being an “F” school to an “C” school! With ST Math, my students don’t have to overcome a language barrier to participate. It’s accessible and developmentally appropriate and it empowers me, as a classroom teacher, to give differentiated, extended and high quality support to my students."
Sarah Wilson, Teacher (Teacher of the Year 2016-17)
South Kearns Elementary School, Granite School District

"The problem-solving approach of ST Math helps us meet the individual needs of every student at Odyssey. French Immersion students, ESL students, and all students needing differentiation or enrichment."
