  Abstract: As of 2009 Texas physics teachers are teaching under a revised set of standards for what students should be able to do, the revised Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills or TEKS for physics. Although changes to the TEKS were "evolutionary not revolutionary," a new structure organizing the topics was imposed and a new emphasis was placed on conceptual understanding. New standards relating to optics and nuclear physics were added.
