NEW FLORIDA ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS
STANDARDS
The new Florida Standards, adopted by the State Board of
Education in February will prepare Florida students for success in
college, career and in life by emphasizing analytical thinking. The
new test will provide a more authentic assessment of the Florida
Standards, because it will include more than multiple choice
questions. Students will be asked to create graphs, interact with
test content and write and respond in different ways than on
traditional tests. New question types will assess students’ higherorder thinking skills in keeping with the higher expectations of
the Florida Standards.

THE MATHEMATICS FLORIDA STANDARDS
(MAFS)
• Ensuring that students can understand and apply mathematical concepts
means more than just making it to the next grade level. The new MAFS
standards lay a foundation for students to use mathematics skills in life.
These standards were adopted by the state of Florida in 2014 and are
being fully implemented in grades K-12 during the 2014 -2015 school
term.
• There is a greater focus on key topics that are crucial for students to
succeed at the next level of the mathematics curriculum. The
mathematics curriculum is more challenging and more rigorous.
Increased emphasis will be placed on conceptual understanding as
opposed to just learning a formula and there will be more applications of
the concepts to demonstrate in-depth comprehension of the material.
MAFS DEVELOPMENT CRITERIA
The standards were developed using the following criteria:
Aligned with expectations for college and career success
Inclusive of both content and the application of knowledge through high-order skills
Built upon strengths and lessons of previous state standards
Developed so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society
Evidence and research–based
Criteria was set by the FLDOE
THE WAY MATHEMATICS IS BEING TAUGHT
IN FLORIDA IS CHANGING
With the adoption of the new Florida Standards for mathematics, students will be focusing
on critical areas including the following:
Building foundational skills, like addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and
decimals AND
Understanding the concepts of mathematics more deeply. (We want to move our children
beyond procedural skill and into conceptual understanding)
Building skills and problem-solving abilities, and applying mathematics to the real world. (By
thinking and reasoning “mathematically,” our students can practice applying
mathematics to the real world.)
QUESTIONS TO PONDER
 Is my child on grade level at this point in the school term?
 Refer to Parent I-Ready Report
 In what area(s) is the student excelling? Having problems? Ex: Operations and Algebraic
Thinking; Number and Operations – Fractions; Measurement and Data and Geometry
 i-Ready Diagnostic Results
 Weekly Block Tests; Interim Assessments
 How can parents help students improve in struggling areas?
 Monitor that homework is being done
 Provide opportunities for students to work on i-Ready Learning Path in Mathematics at home
 Provide opportunities for students to work on Reflex Math to address fluency deficiencies
 What will students be learning next?
 Refer to District Pacing Guide Year-At-A Glance
TEACHING THE MAFS VIDEO GALLERY
Sample MAFS instructional videos can be accessed at the link below. Each video in
the “We Can Do This, Florida!” mathematics video series features one teacher,
classroom and current Florida Standard. These videos provide an authentic look at
how students and teachers are interacting with our state’s mathematics standards.
