Learning List has reviewed DynaStudy’s DynaNotes Math Eligible TEKS Program for grades 6-8.  DynaNotes is a supplemental learning aid to support mathematics instruction in grades 3 through Algebra 2. Student resources are in print format and teacher materials are on a CD-ROM. Instruction at each grade level addresses each of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) assessed by the applicable STAAR test.

At each grade level, DynaNotes presents content using a four-page set of “Student Course Notes” and an accompanying “Student Activity Book.” Student Course Notes are coated cardstock notes broken into categories related to the TEKS strands for each grade level (e.g., Geometry and Spatial Reasoning). Categories are broken into sections that address a subset of the strand (e.g., circles) and provide notes on specific content (e.g., radius, diameter). Section notes summarize fundamental concepts in short, easy-to-read text, clear examples, and colorful illustrations, tables, and graphs. The Student Activity Book provides a set of corresponding activities for each section of the Student Course Notes.

Teacher materials are provided on a CD-ROM and include “Student Course Notes and Lessons,” TEKS alignment documents, and answer keys to problems in Student Activity Books. Course Notes and Lessons present the Student Course Notes for each section and an accompanying lesson plan.  Lesson plans present the TEKS addressed by instruction, whole group warm-up exercises and discussion questions, and references to the accompanying activities in the Student Activity Book.
