Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Estherville District Curriculum
The high school Math curriculum introduces a higher level of rigor into the expectations but uses what students have learned during elementary and middle school as the basis for these advanced operations and functions. High school math is organized around Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Modeling, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Students work with equations and inequalities and are taught how to reason using either function in their problem-solving method. They are also expected to demonstrate how they arrived at an answer.
Students also learn how to build and interpret geometric and trigonometric functions. They are taught how to create and use linear, quadratic, and exponential models to help solve problems that require extrapolation. Students also build mathematical models to forecast or predict needs or outcomes. For instance, students may be asked to figure out how much water is needed for 1 million people during an emergency situation and how it would be distributed. By focusing on problems like these, educators are able to provide a real world context for the math.

Chalk Talk: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Charlie and Lola
Lauren Child’s series that centers on brother and sister Charlie and Lola includes charming photographic backgrounds with drawn, child-like characters in front of the backgrounds. In I Want to be Much More Bigger Like You, Lola would like to be taller so that she can ride the “Super Dooper Loop the Looper,” so she tries to“think” being taller to see if she will grow. Charlie tells her that she cannot do this but that there are plenty of rides for smaller people. In the end, Lola has fun riding the Chug-a-Bugs, as she realizes that it's not always so bad to be little. Throughout the series of books, the siblings concoct many imaginary scenarios, have fun describing new things, and make the world seem more manageable.
