Florida will launch its new math standards in the fall of 2010, and Pearson hopes to take part in designing a new learning environment for the state’s students. Pearson submitted a comprehensive suite of K-12 math programs to the Florida State Board of Education—its elementary, middle, and high school offerings are centered on “interactive problem-solving and building a conceptual understanding of mathematics,” all aligned to the new state standards.

Pearson’s Vice President for Florida Debbie Campbell says that the K-12 math programs Pearson has developed for the state will “engage and motivate students, and allow teachers to differentiate instruction to ensure that all students stay on track to build a comprehensive foundation in math.

The following Pearson programs are expected to be approved and available for Florida schools by the fall of 2010:

• enVisionMATH Florida: Grades K-5.

• Florida Mathematics 1, 2, 3: Grades 6-8.

• Prentice Hall Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2 © 2011 Florida Edition: Grades 9-12.

Campbell added that Pearson is committed to giving Florida teachers access to professional development to help them implement the new math standards and teach effectively.
