Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kamloops District Curriculum
The math curriculum emphasizes the topics of number systems and operations, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. Elementary students are introduced to the basics of pattern and shape recognition, measurement, and probabilities in advance of later work. In high school, students work to make connections between algebra and geometry. They use their knowledge of the Pythagorean Theorem to find distances, and also use Cartesian coordinates to verify geometric relationships, including properties of triangles and quadrilaterals.
The science curriculum has many goals including teaching the content knowledge associated with topics like biology, chemistry and physics, but also in teaching students how scientists investigate their questions, observe and track information, and convey their hypotheses and conclusions. Students learn how to present their findings as well. They are required to organize their findings in a coherent manner, including the use of graphs and charts as appropriate. Students also learn how to utilize various models to represent their findings.

Chalk Talk: Helping Students Develop Financial Literacy
Financial literacy can be infused in various parts of the curriculum from teaching students about banking and economics in social studies to using money problems in math, but it is an element of learning that will be critical to their future success. Savings is a concept that is central to the study of financial literacy. Students learn about various ways to save their money for the future, and gain an appreciation for the self-control that is necessary to save rather than spend. Middle school students also learn how cost, material availability, and material quality impact consumer decisions. At the high school level, students learn about various financial commitments, such as college tuition, cell phone bills, and groceries, and identify their commonalities and differences. Students investigate external factors that influence consumerism as well, including inflation. Various provincial and national statutes that protect consumers are examined as well. Students also work with contracts, analyzing the elements of a contract that are required for it to be a legal, binding document.
