The Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS™) was implemented in Texas beginning in spring 2003. The Rice Air Curriculum targets many of the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) that are covered on this exam. Below can be found a list of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade TEKS that are targeted.

Math teks that will be targeted in this curriculum

(a) introduction.

(1) Within a well-balanced mathematics curriculum, the primary focal points at Grade 5 are comparing and contrasting lengths, areas, and volumes of two- or three-dimensional geometric figures; representing and interpreting data in graphs, charts, and tables; and applying whole number operations in a variety of contexts.

(b) knowledge and skills.

(2) Number, operation, and quantitative reasoning. The student uses fractions in problem-solving situations.

(5) Patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking. The student makes generalizations based on observed patterns and relationships. The student is expected to:

  • (A) describe the relationship between sets of data in graphic organizers such as lists, tables, charts, and diagrams;

(11) Measurement. The student applies measurement concepts. The student measures time and temperature (in degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius). The student is expected to:

  • (A) solve problems involving changes in temperature; and
  • (B) solve problems involving elapsed time.

(13) Probability and statistics. The student solves problems by collecting, organizing, displaying, and interpreting sets of data. The student is expected to:

  • (A) use tables of related number pairs to make line graphs;
  • (C) graph a given set of data using an appropriate graphical representation such as a picture or line graph.

(14) Underlying processes and mathematical tools. The student applies Grade 5 mathematics to solve problems connected to everyday experiences and activities in and outside of school. The student is expected to:

  • (A) identify the mathematics in everyday situations;
  • (B) solve problems that incorporate understanding the problem, making a plan, carrying out the plan, and evaluating the solution for reasonableness;
  • (D) use tools such as real objects, manipulatives, and technology to solve problems.

(15) Underlying processes and mathematical tools. The student communicates about Grade 5 mathematics using informal language. The student is expected to:

  • (A) explain and record observations using objects, words, pictures, numbers, and technology; and
  • (B) relate informal language to mathematical language and symbols.

(16) Underlying processes and mathematical tools. The student uses logical reasoning. The student is expected to:

  • (A) make generalizations from patterns or sets of examples and nonexamples; and
  • (B) justify why an answer is reasonable and explain the solution process.

Science teks that will be targeted in this curriculum

Objective 1 – student will demonstrate an understanding of the nature of science

(3.1, 4.1, 5.1) Student conducts field and laboratory investigations following home and school safety procedures and environmentally appropriate and ethical practices

what does nano mean?
Anassong Reply
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?

there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
in general
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
