Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Amherst District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum, which follows the Common Core, begins by introducing students to numbers and counting, as well as basic arithmetic. As students become comfortable with these concepts, they advance to more complex skills. Within elementary school, students will become proficient in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, basic geometry, and fractions and decimals. In secondary school, students will be exposed to pre-algebra and algebra, and are able to take their skills as far as calculus. Students are also expected to become familiar with various elements of geometry and statistics.
The Science curriculum begins with a basic understanding of concepts that are easy to observe. Students are asked to use inquiry to develop opinions about the world around them. Then, they will use the scientific method to understand the basis for their observations. As they advance, they will be expected to understand more specific scientific processes in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics and earth science.

Chalk Talk: Rhetorical Devices: Antithesis
One type of parallel structure that is often encountered in literature is antithesis. His happens when you place two opposite items within a parallel structure. For example, the phrase “many are called, but few are chosen” juxtaposes several different things. The word “many” is placed in direct contrast to the word “few”, and the word “called” is contrasted with “chosen”. Argumentative writers use antithesis to show a stark contrast between two ideas, and a good writer is able to employ antithesis to help strengthen their argument.
