Algebra I Mini Interventions: Quadratics, Exponential Functions, and Algebraic Methods (downloadable PDF)
Understand the latest Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for mathematics and access teaching models to help students more fully grasp key concepts around quadratic/exponential functions and algebraic methods.
This deconstruction of the TEKS for mathematics makes teaching math more rigorous, more fun, and less confusing. These mini interventions can not only help teachers understand the current TEKS, they also provide background information for skills students might have missed from previous grades, and guidance for how to address them.
Also included are intervention techniques for students who are having a particularly difficult time learning. Intervention modules correspond to student expectations (SEs) as outlined in the TEKS. Each module takes you from pre-assessment, to classroom teaching, all the way through post-assessment, and includes formative questions, important ideas, vocabulary and formulas, step-by-step examples of instructional activities, and questions designed to help you evaluate student mastery.
An edition covering linear equations and inequalities is also available.

Algebra I Mini Interventions: Quadratics, Exponential Functions, and Algebraic Methods was produced by Virginia Keasler, an Education Specialist for Secondary Mathematics at Region 13. Virginia has experience with teaching all high school math courses. Virginia also has been a district Math and Science Coordinator and a Middle School Math Instructional Coach. In her work with high school math teachers across the state, Virginia noticed that intervention tools were greatly needed. While K-8 schools may have intervention teachers, this is a rarity in high school. In an effort to provide high school teachers with much needed resources for intervention to close the gap for their Algebra 1 students, Virginia has created the intervention tool Algebra 1 Mini-Interventions.
