Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Adams District Curriculum
Data analysis and probability are two central topics of study in the high school math curriculum in Adams. Students learn how to compare data using summary statistics like mean, median and mode. Measures of spread are also explored, including standard deviation and inter-quartile range. Learners use scatterplots to analyze patterns in data. These plots are also utilized to describe relationships between two variables. Experiments are performed in which students use probability models to determine potential outcomes.
The high school English language arts curriculum in Adams helps students develop the skills they need to be effective readers. Learners work with various texts, including those of an informational nature, to determine the key ideas and details of the author’s work. When reading fictional stories, students develop an understanding of how the author develops the plot and relationships between characters. The manner in which a text is structured is also examined in light of how that structure lends to the presentation of ideas by the author.

Keeping Informed: Recent Adams Educational News
- Football Team Honored for Work in the Community - Hoosac Valley High's football team was honored by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) not for its athletic performance but for its community service. The team helped restore the playground at a local elementary school, shoveled out fire hydrants during times of heavy snowfall (very important in preventing fires during the winter), and served chowder at the ThunderFest Winter Festival.
- Elementary Students "Jump Rope for Heart" - In conjunction with American Heart month, elementary students from Cheshire and C.T. Plunkett elementary schools jump-roped in their gym classes in order to raise awareness of heart disease. The two schools also were able to raise $9,000 in donations, with the top fundraiser—a kindergartener—raising $1,000.
- Peer Leaders Give to Ronald McDonald House - Through various fundraisers, student peer leaders from Hoosac Valley Middle and High schools were able to raise and donate $575 to Ronald McDonald Houses. Eighteen of these students visited the Springfield Ronald McDonald Houses and spent time with children who were staying there. The students started as peer leaders through the District Attorney's Middle School Peer Mentoring Training Program, which "fosters leadership in young people through education and service to others."

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: What Is Geometry?
Geometry is the branch of mathematics that involves shapes, the position of figures, and space. It is typically one of the three required math courses in high school—in-between the two algebras—taken by tenth graders and advanced ninth graders. Geometry concepts appear early on in the elementary grades, when students learn to recognize the features of and draw basic shapes such as triangles, squares, and circles; they will learn about 3-D and other more complex shapes such as hexagons and cubes in the upper elementary grades. Other geometry concepts include lines, line segments, and rays; perimeter and area; angles and circumference; symmetry; and volume and surface area.
