District Elementary and Secondary Math Coaches

An elementary and secondary math coach are available to assist schools and teachers with providing high quality math instruction. Please download the document below for a list of math coach responsibilities and available services.


Our district supported resources can be found in the math groups by grade level. These groups house all district created materials, and resources that teachers have created through our curriculum alignment project. In addition to our CAP groups we have a textbook and online resources. Online resources are accessed through


Khan Academy offers high quality K-12 virtual support for the mathematics classroom. Students can build a personnalized learning plan by creating a math mission. By answering a few problems, Khan Academy will generate a learning plan. Students and teachers can follow this learning plan or choose different different material based on other needs. Students and teachers will be able to review student progress within the Khan Academy system. Students also have the option of adding parent accounts. Parent accounts will allow parents to track student progress just like teachers, but specific to their children.

Khan Academy offers a variety of math resources. Khan has also aligned their curriculum to the Engage NY modules (the have aligned videos for remediation as well as for students performing on grade level within the module), and they offer an SAT prep course that tailors an individual learning path for students based on their PSAT score.  Engage NY is a great resource when looking for instructional tools to match the rigor of the standard.

Walton County School District (WCSD) student and teacher information has already been uploaded to Khan Academy and is currently availble to all WCSD teachers. Students and teachers can access Khan Academy by logging into Clever; a link has been provided below. Students will use their student ID as both the username and password. Teachers will use their e-mail address as the username and Focus password as the password. If teachers are unable to access Clever, be sure to use the "forgot password" option.

After accessing Khan Academy through Clever for the first time, setting up a student account is easy. A quick video and word document have been provided below to assist with this process.

Renaissance Place

Renaissance Learning provides us access to our STAR Enterprise math assessment, but progress monitoring is not the only function served by Ren. Place resources. Core Progression resources are also available to teachers. The Core Progression resources allow teachers to review standard specifics, eplore verticle alignment and review resources designed to support curriulum and instruction. The link below leads to a quick 2 minute video that will show teachers how to access and use Core Progression resources.


3 Act Math is a great way to engage students and get them actively thinking about real world problems. 3 Act Math refers to three stages in story telling:

Act 1 - The central conflict is introduced. Students become familiar with the problem and begin understanding the parameters.

Act 2 - The students overcome obstacles, look for resources and find new tools. During this phase, students actively problem solve and use learned skills to search for a resolution.

Act 3 - Here, students resolve the conflict and begin thinking about future problems and application.

Problems introduced from 3 Act Math are created and uploaded by math teachers around the Nation. Some lessons include worksheets and videos to assist you in engaging students and guiding them through each activity. Lessons are available for 3rd grade through Geometry in high school. Your students will love these activities!


This online resource may be found through your clever signon at Hands on, High Engagement Activities for students that build conceptual understanding. These are located in the Secondary Math Group in the AIMS Activities folder. They are organized by topic.


Students routinely ask, “Why do I need to know this?” Get The Math provides video explanations of how math is used in everyday life with challenge questions to keep them thinking. These videos are most appropriate for secondary mathematics.

BIG IDEAS MATH: Textbook and Online

This online resource may be found through your clever signon at  Note that this resource is not always the best one. Often times it does not meet the rigor of the standard. Please use a critical eye when using this resource, and follow the item specifications not the textbook.


Here you will find toolkit of information, resources, and tools organized by grade level. You can look up standards, find lesson plans, Mathematics Formative Assessment System tasks (MFAS), and a variety of other resources maintained by DOE. This is a dense website with lots of useful information. It will take time to explore everything.

Mathematics Formative Assessment System tasks (MFAS)

The Mathematics Formative Assessment System (MFAS) was developed in collaboration with Florida State University. Formative assessment tasks are available for Kindergarten through Geometry in high school. MFAS tasks were designed to assist teachers in determining students' specific learning needs and differentiating to promote continual growth. MFAS tasks will assist teachers in meeting the needs of both high performing and low performing students. These can be under the resources tab on the CPALMS website. The system includes tasks or problems that teachers can implement with their students, and rubrics that help the teacher interpret students' responses. Teachers using MFAS ask students to perform mathematical tasks, explain their reasoning, and justify their solutions. Rubrics for interpreting and evaluating student responses are included so that teachers can differentiate instruction based on students' strategies instead of relying solely on correct or incorrect answers. The objective is to understand student thinking so that teaching can be adapted to improve student achievement of mathematical goals related to the standards.

MFAS task can be found under the files section of the Secondary Math Group in the folder labeled MFAS. Here they are sorted by standard, and I have included the PowerPoint for the MFAS training for those unfamiliar.


Teachers will find suggested activities for grades 3 - 5 and Algebra I by following the FLDOE Standards Support link above. These activities are aligned directly to the FSA and located directly on


Clearly define what it means for a student to be proficient at a standard. These are broken down by standard and clearly define what students performing at a specific achievement level can do. Below is there description and an example. They have them for grades 3-Algebra 2, and math starts on page 99.
