Measuring Up organizes instruction in chapters that address key concepts in Algebra I (e.g., polynomial and algebraic expressions, quadratic equations). Each chapter is made up of short lessons that address specific TEKS. Content is scaffolded, building from simple to more complex concepts and connections to the TEKS are clear in both student and teacher resources.
Each lesson includes a STAAR practice test and each chapter ends with a STAAR Minitest. Teacher editions also contain two versions of a cumulative STAAR practice test, a table identifying the TEKS addressed by each practice test problem, and a prescriptive answer key to support re-teaching.
