Lawrence District and Curriculum
All public schools in Massachusetts follow the state’s Curriculum Framework, which incorporates the Common Core Standards adopted by many states across the nation. There is an emphasis on Mathematics, the Curriculum Framework cites the findings of the National Research Council’s report “Adding It Up” which identifies major areas of basic competence required for literacy in mathematics. A goal is for students to develop a strong operational sense and be able to draw upon that to perform mental or conceptual math.
We currently cover the following Lawrence-area school district: Lawrence Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lawrence District Curriculum
Students should be able not just to provide a solution to a problem but also to demonstrate a deep understanding of the problem and develop various approaches to solving it. They should be able to figure out what they need to solve a problem, and to evaluate the solutions they develop, explaining how and why they work or don’t work. They should be able to express the problem in the language of mathematics by using symbols and abstract concepts.
By eighth grade, students need to master the concept of nonrational numbers and be able to estimate their value by using the rational number system. They also need to be able to work effectively with radicals and exponents, using square and cube roots to express answers to problems. They will be required to express relationships through graphs and to use linear equations and functions. In geometry, students need to understand the concepts of congruence and similarity, to use the Pythagorean Theorum and to solve problems that involve volume.

Chalk Talk: Developing Ideas for an Essay
Have a major paper to write? The hardest part is getting started. And the hardest part of getting started is knowing what to write about. The good news is that there are lots of strategies you can use to develop ideas to write about. First, brainstorming which is a quick exercise designed to generate a lot of ideas in a short span of time. Give yourself one minute to do this. Then, look at your list and pick out your favorite ideas, and take another minute to brainstorm about those items. Or, freewriting which is like brainstorming,and also a quick exercise. Give yourself a few minutes to write----nonstop. It can be very effective to freewrite after you brainstorm. Brainstorming just requires a list; freewriting forces you to build on the list by writing out the ideas more completely.
