Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brentwood District Curriculum

The Standards for Mathematical Practice involve a balanced approach of both procedure and understanding and apply to all grade levels from PK-12. The standards include persevering in solving problems, reasoning both quantitatively and abstractly, constructing arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others, modeling with math, and strategically using appropriate math tools. In order for students to be able to acquire these skills, they need to have a solid understanding of the mathematical concepts they learn and not rely too heavily on the procedures.

The curriculum for Mathematics, Science, and Technology includes analysis and scientific inquiry, effective use of information technology systems, the application of scientific concepts, the use of technology to solve human problems, the interconnectedness between the three disciplines, and the solving of real-world problems involving the three disciplines. The standards for social studies revolve around the following topics: U.S. and New York history; world history; geography; economics; and civics, citizenship, and government. Each of the standards for each content area is broken down further by grade level.

Chalk Talk: Tips for the ACT and SAT

Getting a good score on the reading portion of the SAT or ACT is often achieved through the careful use of strategies. These strategies may differ for each type of question, but many can be used throughout the test. For many, sentence completion questions take less time to answer than those that are included with a reading passage. Therefore, it can be helpful is to answer those questions first. Sentence completion questions also tend to increase in difficulty as you progress and the last few questions may contain more words that you don’t know. Increasing your vocabulary before the test may help you answer more questions correctly. Also, if there are two or three blanks in a sentence, look at one blank’s answer choices and see if there is an answer that relates to it in the other blank’s answer choices.
