Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Texas High School Math Series provides comprehensive Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II courses designed specifically for Texas students. Learning List has reviewed each course as submitted for state adoption in Texas. The courses support instruction in blended learning environments and include videos, interactive tools, and adaptive software that customizes instruction based on individual student needs. Instruction combines Texas’ math content and process standards and includes performance-based assessments and opportunities for students to write about math concepts.
Online content includes interactive problem sets, videos and tutorials, and the Personal Math Trainer (PMT), powered by Knewton™, through a Student Dashboard. Interactive problems provide students with immediate corrective feedback. Videos highlight the real-world applications of algebra, and video tutorials explain example problems. Lesson videos include scannable QR codes that enable students to access them on smartphones. The PMT is an adaptive practice, homework, and formative assessment tool that pinpoints students’ needs to deliver targeted remediation, extension, and enrichment in order to help them learn more efficiently and effectively. The PMT prescribes intervention activities based on individual student work and automatically grades assignments. Grades are reported on the teacher dashboard.
Teacher resources include links to the TEKS, background in key content, questioning strategies, planning and pacing guides, and support for differentiating instruction and teaching struggling readers. Teachers have access to materials for English language learners, Response to Intervention, and advanced learners. Online professional development resources include teaching tips and videos in which master teachers model effective strategies in the classroom.
