Mathematics Station Activities for Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) - Grade 8 - Print Version
The research is in: students make sense of mathematical problems best when they work in small groups, with hands-on experiences that echo real-world situations. That’s why Station Activities for Texas Mathematics have proven so popular—middle school students learn to apply mathematics, employ problem-solving strategies, communicate with one another, and reason through to the answers while working together.  

The book contains 19 sets of activities focusing on: Number, Operation, and Quantitative Reasoning; Geometry and Spatial Reasoning; Measurement; Patterns, Relationships, and Algebraic Thinking; Probability and Statistics. The activities consist of four different stations where students work in small groups, moving from station to station once their activities are complete.

According to Jill Rosenblum, Walch Education’s Vice President of Education, “ Station-based activities give students multiple opportunities to develop their understanding. At the same time, they give teachers the chance to circulate, do informal assessments, and provide individual or small-group instruction as needed. These activities were developed and piloted as part of a summer school program that boosted student performance by an average of 37%, with some classrooms’ average improvement as high as 89%.”

  • 19 sets of activities, each with 4 separate stations
  • 15 minutes per station followed by a debrief discussion
  • Correlated to Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge ( TEKS), complementing any math program
  • Uses readily available materials and manipulatives (not included)

Includes teacher support with discussion guides with prompts to encourage reflection and synthesis of ideas, suggested appropriate responses, and a listing of common errors and misconceptions identified in current research, answer keys, and material lists.

Books for Grade 6 and Grade 7 are also available.
