Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Amherst District Curriculum

The Math standards build a solid foundation in mathematical concepts in the elementary grades. Mathematical instruction focuses on the in-depth study of whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and decimals. Built across grade levels, these skills help students develop speed and accuracy and develop knowledge and understanding of how to use mathematical skills and concepts. This procedural fluency helps middle and high school students apply their mathematical knowledge concepts and skills to real world problems.

The English/Language Arts Standards focuses on closely connected strands related to reading, writing, speaking, listening and language. The revised standards also set requirements for literacy in history/social studies, science and technical subjects. English/Language Arts standards focus on careful reading of fiction and non-fiction texts, increased academic vocabulary and require students to discuss their reading and writing by providing supporting evidence.
