Cumberland District and Curriculum
The Allegany County Public Schools system uses an elementary school curriculum that follows Maryland’s Voluntary State Curriculum. The curriculum for all class work is geared to helping students achieve their potential. At the kindergarten and elementary level students learn phonics, and basic reading skills. This includes being able to read grade level text with fluency, learn 8-12 new words per week, understand basic grammar and develop reading comprehension skills. Reading comprehension includes being able to summarize the reading material, and apply previous knowledge and skills to questions about the reading.
We currently cover the following Cumberland-area school districts: Alleghany County Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cumberland District Curriculum
In Math at the elementary school level, students learn basic Math functions, counting, simple algebra, the basics of geometry, elementary statistics and learn to solve age appropriate word problems. In middle school, students learn about functions, patterns, basic algebraic expressions, solving equations, identifying geometric relationships and being able to use proportional reasoning to solve problems. Most importantly students at this level should be able to apply what they are learning in their Math courses to problems in real life.
High school students are required to take and pass both algebra and geometry. In algebra, students must be able to demonstrate that they understand and can use mathematical modeling, solve equations, linear and exponential relationships, and statistics. In geometry, students learn basic trigonometry, the concept of probability and circles, how to use the theories of congruence and constructions, and see the relationship of algebra to geometry.
