1 1 Texas High School Math Program Overview Introduction In this tutorial, you ll explore the Pearson Texas High School Math program: Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. You ll review the program components and see how their design reflects the rigor in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills-or TEKS. You ll also examine the tools available to support planning, differentiation, and assessment in your classroom. Have your Pearson Texas High School Math materials handy so you can follow along. 1

2 2 Program Components Pearson Texas High School Math offers an array of print and digital components that give you flexibility in your classroom. Whether you choose a primarily print experience, all digital, or a blend of the two, you ll find resources that create a powerful learning experience. 2

3 3 For Students There are two texts that help your students achieve a balance of understanding, fluency, and application. The Student Text and Homework Helper is available in print or online as an etext. In either format, the text contains vocabulary, worked-out example problems, a variety of Practice and Application exercises, and Texas Test Practice for every lesson. The Interactive Math Journal: Student Companion is available in two ways: as a print consumable text or online as a digital ACTIVe-book. The journal provides space for students to complete problems at several points in the lesson: the lesson-opening Solve It! problem; Got It? questions during Guided Problem Solving; and Lesson Check problems. The journal also includes Texas Test Practice for every lesson. 3

4 4 For Teachers The Teacher s Guide is available in print or digitally as an etext. Inside, you ll find guidance on how to support your students as they explore new concepts. The Overview and Implementation Guide is a valuable one-stop resource. It contains background information about the program, full text correlations to the TEKS, and articles about best practices. 4

5 5 PearsonTEXAS.com PearsonTEXAS.com is the portal for both you and your students to access digital resources. When students log in, they can access their digital texts, find online support, view assignments, take online assessments, and track their progress. When you log in, you ll find digital resources for every unit, topic, and lesson; the etext Teacher s Guide; and a library of downloadable and editable resources to use in your classroom. 5

6 6 Program Organization Each course in Pearson Texas High School Math is organized into broad conceptual units. Units are comprised of topics. Each topic is a set of lessons that build students toward mastery of the topic. At the unit level, you ll find information about the TEKS that will be addressed in that unit. You ll also see an overview of the assessments available in the unit. 6

7 7 3-Act Math Every topic is introduced with a 3-Act Math task. These thought-provoking tasks are inspired by Dan Meyer s work on engaging students. The first act of the task uses a video to introduce a real-world problem. Throughout the topic, students develop tools to address the problem. They complete the second act by modeling to develop a solution. In the final act, they compare their solutions to the actual result. You can find support for each 3-Act Math task in the Overview and Implementation Guide. Students have space in the Interactive Math Journal: Student Companion to work out solutions for 3-Act Math tasks. 7

8 8 Topics and Lessons The Teacher s Guide is all the support you need for using the print and digital features of the program in one convenient place. Content information at the topic level gives you background to help place big ideas in the context of the larger program. As your students work through each lesson, you ll have support at your fingertips. The Teacher s Guide uses a two-column format. In the left column, you ll find teacher support, including probing questions; ways to encourage mathematical discourse; suggestions for scaffolding learning; and ideas for digital tools to use. In the right column, you ll find minis of the student print pages and digital animations. 8

9 9 Step 1: Interactive Learning Lessons in Pearson Texas High School Math use a five-step lesson structure that follows the 5-E Model: engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate. Every lesson begins with an interactive Solve It! activity. Here, students engage with and explore the content for the lesson. Students record their thinking for the Solve It! in the Interactive Math Journal: Student Companion. With the support in the Teacher s Guide, you can lead students to begin thinking about the lesson s Essential Understanding. 9

10 10 Step 2: Guided Problem Solving In Step 2: Guided Problem Solving, example problems help students develop the ideas that they explored in the Solve It! Students can find these worked-out examples in the Student Text and Homework Helper. Digital animations-available at PearsonTexas.com or on the digital lesson DVD-walk through the same example problems. Each example problem leads to a Got It? problem. Students actively work out the Got It? problems in the write-in Interactive Math Journal: Student Companion. Got It? questions for each worked-out example give you a chance to check for student understanding. 10

11 11 Step 3: Lesson Check In the Lesson Check, students explain what they ve learned and begin to elaborate on their thinking. Like the Solve It! and Got It?, students can complete the Lesson Check in the write-in Interactive Math Journal: Student Companion. Do You Know How? questions allow you to assess students procedural fluency. Do You Understand? questions allow you to check for conceptual understanding. 11

12 12 Step 4: Practice Students continue to elaborate on their understanding in Step 4, Practice. The wide variety of practice problems allows students to develop the proficiencies required by the TEKS. Practice and Application problems in each lesson are correlated to a Depth of Knowledge guide as well as the TEKS content and process standards in the Teacher s Guide. Another option for students to practice online is MathXL for School, found online at PearsonTexas.com. MathXL for School provides immediate feedback and autoscores students work. Students have access to interactive learning aids at point of use. Virtual Nerd video tutorials support students as they practice their new content knowledge. Students can access the tutorial videos by navigating to them online, using the Virtual Nerd Homework Tutor: Texas app, or scanning the homework page with the Pearson BouncePages app. These apps are available from the Apple store or Google Play. 12

13 13 Step 5: Assess and Intervene Step 5, Assess and Intervene, is where you evaluate students progress. Assign the Lesson Quiz in print or online. Use the results to immediately plan for remediation, on-level support, or extension. When students take the quiz online at PearsonTEXAS.com, it is immediately scored. Students are automatically assigned the appropriate remediation or enrichment. 13

14 14 Assessment Options Pearson Texas High School Math offers a range of formal and informal assessments. Like the rest of the program, they are available in print and online. Combine them to create an assessment plan that works for your classroom. The Assessment Resource Book contains tools to help you monitor students progress. In it, you ll find these assessments: Get Ready Diagnostic; Lesson Quizzes; Topic Tests; Topic Performance Tasks; Unit Cumulative Assessments; Mid-Course Assessment; End-of-Course Assessment; Weekly TEKS practice; and End-of-Course Practice Test. Additionally, the resource book provides detailed item analysis for the assessments. 14

15 15 Differentiating Instruction Pearson Texas High School Math gives you clear options for differentiating instruction. The Get Ready at the start of each topic is a diagnostic test that assesses prerequisite skills. When students take the Get Ready Diagnostic Assessment online, the appropriate remediation is automatically assigned. At the lesson level, you ll find a Prescription for Differentiation that you can implement immediately based on feedback from the Lesson Quiz. Whether your students need remediation, on-level practice, or extension, there are multiple activities that you can assign. 15

16 16 Closing In this tutorial, you learned about the Pearson Texas High School Math program: Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. You reviewed the program components and heard about how their structure supports the development of conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. You saw how tools and resources embedded in the program help you plan, assess, and differentiate instruction. Thanks for joining me for this brief introduction to the resources available to you with Pearson Texas High School Math and PearsonTEXAS.com. 16
