Abstract/Description: Abstract: (Florida, Common Core State Standards, Mathematics Teachers, 2013) This thesis was designed to determine middle school teachers' perceptions of their state of readiness to enact the Common Core Standards in mathematics in the State of Florida. The descriptive study employed a survey of 100 middle school mathematics teachers throughout the State of Florida in an effort to understand how the state, counties, and administrations can best serve educators through the critical transition from Next Generation Sunshine State Standards to the Common Core State Standards. The survey developed for this study included twenty-seven questions. In order to determine how Florida compares to a similar survey of a generalized sample of United States teachers, this thesis compares the results of the Floridian survey to the results from the national sample. The results suggest that Florida teachers' perceptions of preparedness lag behind that of the rest of the country. The implications of these results are discussed.
