Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Calhoun District Curriculum
The Math curriculum focuses on number sense, computation, algebraic thinking, measurement and spatial recognition, and data analysis. Students are taught skills in each of these topics that help them solve various problems, and are expected to attend to precision, be able to determine the most effective computational tool to be used in problem-solving, and how to communicate their mathematical findings.
The Language Arts curriculum oversees the skills development involved with reading, writing, critical discussion, research, and media viewing. Students are taught how to recognize point of view and authorial intent, they learn how literary devices help readers derive meaning from a text, and are asked to write analytically in response to the texts they have read. Critical awareness developed through investigating literary and non-fiction works, and writing analytically about them are central to the curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Number Sense
As students move from elementary to middle school, they are expected to know and apply the concept of numbers to amounts, money, portions, among many other applications. Middle school is where the true application of number sense is to be demonstrated. However, it is also a time where students struggle in this area. Number sense is what a number truly means. Teachers and tutors can offer help and resources to get students through this transition. As a parent, you too can help your child understand truly what a number means. Student understanding comes from application. Students have to be able to know that half of a pizza is part of a whole, that the amount of slices in half a pizza will feed only a certain amount of people. Similarly, having $4.00 may not be enough to buy 1 magazine, but if he or she has $10.00, they may be able to buy 2 magazines. Practicing such applications and number usage will help students understand how to use numbers in ways they are expected to as they move through grades as well as in the real-world.
