Exemplars problem-solving tasks address the big mathematical ideas within each Unit of Study that has been designed for the TEKS.
Each Unit includes open-ended tasks for classroom instruction, exploration or assessment (Spanish translations are available). Our problems naturally elicit the TEKS Mathematical Process Standards.
Print and review Preliminary Planning Sheets for each task. This useful guide outlines math vocabulary, concepts, solutions, process standards and strategies for every problem.Start your free trial to see a sample planning sheet »
Exemplars instructional tasks are differentiated at 3 entry points. These may also be used as a formative assessment tool.
There are 4 or more instructional tasks for each Unit of Study.
Summative assessment tasks include anchor papers and scoring rationales that demonstrate student work in accordance with the 4 performance levels of Exemplars assessment rubric.
Exemplars standards-based rubrics provide clear guidelines for assessing student work. Our assessment rubric supports the TEKS Mathematical Processes.
For each grade level (K–5), we’ve picked sample tasks from one Unit of Study for you to check out. These are the same, complete tasks that subscription users have.
