The Florida Standards in Mathematics were adopted in February of 2014 by the Florida State Board of Education. Florida Standards in Mathematics endorse important concepts such as number sense and problem solving, critical thinking and math reasoning, justifying and analyzing mathematical arguments, understanding and building models, reasoning strategically and using appropriate tools, precision, use of structure, and the use of repeated reasoning in problem solving. With the adoption of the new Florida Standards, math instruction will be focused on deep understanding of concepts to solidify concrete comprehension of math content.
