TEXAS ESSENTIAL KNOWLEDGE & SKILLS (TEKS)
TEKS SETS THE STANDARDS OF KNOWLEDGE FOR TEXAS EDUCATION
Many states have opted to use Common Core mathematics. But not here in Texas. In Texas we use TEKS for mathematics. Texas approved an updated version of TEKS for math in 2012. TEKS is important because it’s what sets the grade and subject standards for students in Texas. Students need to know and understand the material listed in the TEKS manual / guidebook.
