Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Batavia District Curriculum
In English, the focus is on developing the skills to listen, speak, read and write with a broad understanding of the English language. In their reading and listening skills, students will learn how to read for information including facts and ideas and be able to analyze and apply that understanding to write compositions and text. Writing is also a critical component of student learning and they are expected to develop a process-oriented approach to written work.
In the area of Mathematics, students will learn the fundamentals of mathematics, including computation, algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics. The emphasis is on developing the skills to use mathematical analysis to solve problems and be able to utilize math skills in real world settings. Students are expected to work with different types of mathematic relations and models, develop mathematic literacy, and be able to communicate in the language of math.
