Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Durham District Curriculum

Core academic learning is subject specific in the Durham schools. The Mathematics curriculum followed in the Durham Public Schools is that of real like scenarios that incorporate Algebra, Geometry and Statistics into the students’ everyday life. A thorough understanding of mathematical equations, formulas and work problems are taught on a consistent basis so that students are equipped to use their mathematical experiences from high school beyond the classroom.

The Mathematics curriculum is rigorous and geared for students that are ready to take on the challenge of being able to complete problems from beginning to end, then know how to relay back what they did to solve a problem. The curriculum will get the students to learning and thinking outside of their comfort zones in math, as they advance in this subject, the more they will be successful at solving complex problems.

Chalk Talk: Is Establishing A College Major As A Freshman Really Important?

The most important part of freshman year is simply attending classes. Waiting to determine what major you’re going to declare in your freshman year of college should not ever stop you from becoming an active student. You can always decide later what you want to major in while in college. You will always want to stay in touch with an Academic Counselor because they are filled with a wealth of information for you while narrowing down a major of specific study. The Academic Counselor will or at least should be one of the people you communicate with on a regular basis; they can help you get through the rigors of classes, extra-curricular activities and the do’s and don’ts of college life.
