Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ivins District Curriculum
The Math curriculum under the Utah Core focuses on problem-solving and critical thinking skills. More than being able to mechanically solve a problem, the curriculum aims to make sure that students understand the principles behind a given mathematical process, and are able to see how it relates to other mathematical concepts. This follows best practices for mathematics education, and has as its goal making sure students have sufficient mathematical literacy.
For instance, early math is taught with an emphasis on manipulatives, physical objects that help students visualize mathematical processes; students are also asked to visualize problems by drawing pictures and diagrams to explain them. When students have mastered reading skills, they are given word problems to help them connect the structure of a problem to the actual operations. The basic principles of algebra, geometry, and statistics are introduced in elementary school, so that students will have a strong basis to build on.

Chalk Talk: Arts Education Improves Student Success
The arts are not merely fun for students, or a way to get them interested in creative expression. They also provide a way for students to improve in other subjects. A sense of rhythm and timing from music can improve students’ number sense, while visual arts can improve the spatial sense so necessary for working on geometric reasoning. Singing improves students understanding not only of rhythm but of how words work, and can improve literacy skills. Doing visual art projects, dance, and music can also help students improve their fine and gross motor skills, particularly in the early grades, which can help them do better with physical tasks relevant to their education.
