In anticipation of the State Board of Education’s scheduled 2011-2012 revision of the TEKS for Mathematics, the Commissioner of Education convened a group of advisors to review current research and resources and to offer suggestions regarding the upcoming TEKS revision and future professional development. The Commissioner’s Mathematics Advisory Group, established in the fall of 2010, includes mathematics educators and mathematicians from Texas. The recommendations of the Commissioner’s Mathematics Advisory Group regarding the next generation of mathematics standards in Texas were compiled and then reviewed by a panel of national advisors in mathematics, known as the National Review Team.

The result of this work is a document titled,“The Commissioner’s Draft of the Texas Mathematics Standards (PDF, 954KB).”
