Mathematics Description and Overview:

The Mathematics Curriculum of Orange County Public Schools provides a comprehensive and coherent set of goals for mathematics for all students. It is based upon the Florida Sunshine State Standards/Florida Mathematics Content Standards and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Principles and Standards.

It is what we expect each student to know and be able to do. It is our belief that all children can learn mathematics, and they deserve the opportunity to do so.
