Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cedar Hills District Curriculum
The curriculum is designed to build progressively from one area to another, so that students are able to improve basic skills and then apply them to solving more complicated problems. For instance, in Mathematics, basic elements of algebra, geometry, and statistics are introduced as early as first grade: students are taught addition and subtraction in ways that emphasize the connection between the operations, which is important to solving equations, and they are taught to visualize data with bar charts and graphs.
Students begin solving equations with variables in sixth grade, and the mathematics curriculum in junior high and high school focused on integrated mathematics classes, which combine elements of algebra and geometry to make sure that students are capable of seeing the links between them. This ensures that when students take advanced mathematics courses, they have built a strong foundation.

Chalk Talk: Language Arts Skills Beyond Reading
Reading is the central skill for the Language Arts, but there’s more to the field then that. Students must know how to write fluently and well, in order to explain what they have read or learned and be able to relate their thoughts to others. In addition, speaking skills are a core part of language arts: the ability to explain a thought to an audience clearly, so that they can follow it, is not inborn, but something that everyone needs to practice. In addition to helping your student practice their reading skills, give them chances to practice writing and speaking skills as well. Perhaps your student can write the holiday letter to family and friends, or an account of a family vacation. They may want to sign up for theater or debate programs to reinforce their speaking skills. Treat language arts as a well-rounded subject and help your student develop in all areas of it.
