Texas Algebra 1 Curriculum

Texas Algebra 1 Curriculum

Who is this Texas Algebra 1 curriculum for?

The TEKS-aligned Math Beach Texas Algebra 1 curriculum is designed for Texas teachers searching for lessons and activities specifically created to help students master the Algebra 1 TEKS and prepare for the STAAR Algebra 1 EOC exam. 

When I created this curriculum, I sat down with a copy of the TEKS and studied them in-depth (again!) before bundling the TEKS into units and creating lessons. I also ensured that students will have repeated opportunities to interact with the readiness TEKS in ways that will prepare them for their end-of-course Algebra 1 exam.

Take the stress and hassle of trying to find standards-aligned lessons with the included TEKS-alignment guides. Each unit comes with a TEKS-alignment guide and learning objectives for each lesson.
