Florida's B.E.S.T. Standards for MATH was developed through rich collaboration with Florida-based math education experts and explicitly adheres to Florida's B.E.ST. Standards for Mathematics.
Throughout the program, students can consciously learn, demonstrate, and self-assess their understanding of the MTRs. Students can see which MTRs they are addressing with call outs and labels throughout the Student Edition.
Additionally, teachers have access to valuable MTR support at point of use in the Teaching Edition through Laurie’s Notes.
Each section makes expectations clear by showcasing the precise language of the Florida benchmarks. Learning Targets and Success Criteria support and align to those Florida-specific expectations giving students clarity around lesson goals.
In every lesson, students engage in all aspects of rigor: conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and application.
Florida's B.E.S.T. Standards for MATH incorporates the highest-impact teaching strategies from Professor John Hattie's Visible Learning research.
Teacher Clarity, Feedback, Classroom Discussion, Direct Instruction, and Spaced Practice are reinforced throughout the program giving all Florida students the opportunity to be successful.
With a robust assessment suite, teachers can assess students diagnostically, formatively, or summatively, in print or digitally with the Assignment Builder.
The assessments give teachers clear insight into student progress on the B.E.S.T. Standards, helping make data-driven instructional decisions to meet the unique needs of every student.
The Florida's B.E.S.T. Standards for MATH program provides teachers with everything they need to plan, teach, and assess to accelerate learning for all students.
Written by master educator and author, Dr. Laurie Boswell, Laurie's Notes provide teachers with point-of-use support through content overviews, motivation techniques, teaching strategies, questions to ask students for discussion, closures, and more!
