As part of the ongoing initiative to provide Open Education Resource (OER) instructional materials, the COVID Emergency Release V3 (CER 3.0), Pilot Edition, 2023–24, 6–12 Math, is now available on the Texas Gateway. This includes student and teacher versions of lessons, assignments, skills practices, and assessments for grades 6–8, Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II.
The agency has developed these learning resources as a contingency option for school districts. These optional resources were meant to assist in the delivery of instructional materials in a time of public health crisis. School districts and charter schools retain the responsibility to educate their students and should consult with their legal counsel regarding compliance with applicable legal and constitutional requirements and prohibitions. Given the timeline for development, errors are to be expected.
To ensure robust review, feedback is being gathered from parents, caregivers, educators, and organizations across the state. This feedback will inform the continuous improvement of subsequent units and editions. Feedback can be provided by filling out this online survey.
The Texas Gateway offers access to comprehensive math materials for grades 6–12 in the CER 3.0, Pilot Edition, 2023–24, which contains:
- Program and pacing guides
- Standards alignment documents
- Errata lists
- Module and topic overviews
- Student versions of lessons, assignments, skills practices, and assessments
- Caregiver guides in English and Spanish
To access the materials, register for an account on the Texas Gateway. Click the “Sign Up” button at the top of the website and choose the role of parent or teacher. Assessment answer keys are only available through each module’s teacher resources web page.
TEA takes data security seriously and has robust protections in place to guard confidential student data.
OER products currently have a digital component that is only accessed by teachers, so that they can see lesson plans and related content. No student-level data is captured. Digital OER content for students is limited to PDFs that can be shown on laptops, although printed materials are preferred for learning. Importantly, no student surveys are ever administered as part of any OER product.
