Excel Math Is Aligned to TEKS
Excel Math is fully correlated to TEKS: Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills.
It works for students at all levels because it is . . .
We print Excel Math throughout the year so you always have the latest lesson sheets, unlike textbooks. New Texas Teacher Editions have new activities and manipulatives, expanded lessons, discussion ideas, plus added rigor to prepare students for STAAR testing and real-world problem solving.
A Perfect Transition to STAAR
Excel Math materials correlate to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills requirements. Current test results will remain strong for students using Excel Math. At the same time, Excel Math will provide them with powerful support, in-depth practice, and frequent assessment for the move to STAAR.
A Powerful Tool Preparing Students for STAAR Testing
Excel Math includes weekly and quarterly assessment along with a proven spiraling process and spaced repetition of concepts. With Excel Math, students learn higher-order thinking skills beyond what is required of TEKS. Our correlations allow you to focus on the standards or go even further.
Excel Math Gives Your Students More
Within each grade level, we correlate the Excel Math Lessons, Stretches, Activities and Exercises to each Texas standard. You can use the additional concepts in Excel Math to provide accelerated learning for your students who are ready for more.

Here's what Texas teachers are saying about Excel Math:
“I just had to call you! We used your curriculum for
the last two years and our scores were phenomenal. Would you believe,
this year both 4th and 5th grade got 100%! The parents love it because
it’s consistent. It’s just an awesome program and very teacher-friendly.
7 out of 15 students were commended in my class! So, hip…hip…
4th Grade Teacher, Utopia Elementary
“I love Excel Math. The spiraling is what is so key to the program.
Spiraling, coupled with the problem-solving lessons, especially for
a 3rd Grade class, are wonderful. The children truly learn the material.”
— Paula, Third Grade Teacher, Chandler, Texas
