Florida Summit Summary & Recommendations


The Florida Summit on Mathematics and Science Education was held February 2 and 3, 2005.

Legislators, the Governor's staff, Florida Department of Education officials, business and industry representatives, and science and mathematics educators at all levels convened in a one-and-a-half day meeting to establish a common understanding of:

  • the need for science and mathematics literacy in our workforce;

  • the challenges of today's schools;
    effective methods of mathematics and science instruction;

  • the nature and dimensions of creating change in mathematics and science instruction; and

  • action plans necessary to achieve them.

The Summit set the stage for the development of action plans and securing support for action.
