Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bedford District Curriculum
The algebraic strand of mathematics at Bedford County Public School begins with children learning the basics of solving simple equations, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. These students take these tools and learn how to use them to solve for a missing segment of the equation, or to find dimensions of shapes. In high school, they can extend their knowledge through algebra, and then continue on with trigonometry or calculus.
Geography in Bedford County Public School begins with children making maps of their classrooms or their homes. They also learn words such as up, down, far or near to help them when they go on to learn north, south, east or west. The students also learn how geography applies to their communities, country and world as they learn how geography influenced events or settings. With geography under their belt, students are able to see the influence different aspects of their world can have on whether things change or remain the same.

Chalk Talk: Kinesthetic Learning
Many people received their education while sitting at a desk. This was all right for some children but others did not seem to do as well. This could have been because these children had difficulty learning in this way. A kinesthetic learner learns best by adding activity to the lessons. They need to move around or touch people. They may also need frequent breaks while studying and like to try new things. Quite often these children are considered coordinated and agile and hyperactive. They will do well if given hands-on materials when studying, such as sandpaper, puzzles or globes. They also have a tendency to do better if there are experiments, field trips, role playing or games mixed in with their educational experience.
