The mathematics Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) were
developed by the state of Texas to clarify what all students should
know and be able to do in mathematics in kindergarten through grade
12. Districts are required to provide instruction that is aligned with the
mathematics TEKS, which were adopted by the State Board of Education
in 1997 and implemented statewide in 1998. The mathematics TEKS also
form the objectives and student expectations for the mathematics portion
of the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS), which will be
implemented in spring 2003 for grades 3 through 10 and for the Grade
11 Exit Level assessment.
The mathematics TEKS can be downloaded in printable format, free of
charge, from the Texas Education Agency website (
teks). Bound versions of the mathematics and science TEKS are available
for a fee from the Charles A. Dana Center at The University of Texas at
Austin (
Resources for implementing the mathematics TEKS, including
professional development opportunities, are available through the Texas
Education Agency and the Charles A. Dana Center, the state-designated
Mathematics Center for Educator Development. Online resources can be
found in the Mathematics TEKS Toolkit at
Additional products and services that may be of interest are available from
the Dana Center at These include the following:
