Florida’s B.E.S.T. Standards for Mathematics for Grades K-5

HOUSTON – Nov. 4, 2021 – STEMscopes Math from Accelerate Learning has received the highest rating for alignment to the Florida B.E.S.T. (Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking) Standards from Learning List. Learning List’s independent review of STEMscopes Florida Math includes a standard-by-standard review of the alignment of material for grades K-5, a review of the product’s instructional quality, and a review of its technology compatibility.

STEMscopes Florida Math is built from the ground up to Florida’s B.E.S.T. Standards for Mathematics, which were created by Florida educators for Florida students. The core mathematics program for grades K-5 incorporates the 5E plus Intervention and Acceleration lesson model, Concrete-Representational-Abstract approach, intentional discourse, and real-world exploration. From hands-on, inquiry-based math investigations to career connections and current events, it bridges the gap between the classroom and real world.

Learning List found STEMscopes Florida Math to be highly aligned to Florida’s B.E.S.T. Standards for Mathematics,” said Jackie Lain, president of Learning List. “Our reviewers highlighted the fact that this program fulfills the intention of the Mathematical Thinking and Reasoning Skills (MTRs) by teaching mathematics through the lens of the MTRs and noted that math concepts are consistently connected to provide meaningful learning experiences for students.”

Previously, STEMscopes Math for grades K-5 and STEMscopes Texas Math received the highest ratings from Learning List for alignment to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), respectively.
