More than an alignment, this program was explicitly developed with attention to the details of Florida’s B.E.S.T. Standards in Mathematics. The precise language of each Florida benchmark is featured within the Student and Teaching Edition pages, making the expectations clear to both students and teachers.
Because math matters, the Mathematical Thinking and Reasoning Standards are woven throughout the Student and Teaching Editions with custom student-facing questions written to encourage students’ mathematical mindsets and deeper thinking.
When students face struggles outside of school, it can impact their ability to focus on meaningful learning within the classroom. This guide helps teachers understand and effectively navigate these challenges to help all students become successful in math.
Big Ideas Learning’s entirely new Florida’s B.E.S.T. Standards for MATH program empowers Florida educators and ignites student learning from kindergarten through high school (K-12).
Written by a renowned, single authorship team, the program provides a cohesive, coherent, and rigorous mathematics curriculum that encourages students to become strategic thinkers and problem solvers.
Grounded in solid pedagogy and extensive research, the program embraces Dr. John Hattie’s Visible Learning Research. Learning Targets and Success Criteria consistently provide a framework to help students and teachers understand the purpose and intention of each lesson and a means of assessing student learning.
