Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mendota District Curriculum
Math instruction focuses on deep conceptual understanding, with students solving real-world problems and collaborating with classmates. The development of 21st century learning skills and the implementation of instructional technology are infused into aspects of the math curriculum. Students math literacy, including understanding word problems, reading graphs and charts, and being able to describe their math thinking are goals. Further on, quantitative and logical reasoning skills are goals of the curriculum.
One goal of the math curriculum is for students to develop fluency in problem-solving. Fluency does not necessarily mean that calculations have to be memorized; although, this is indicated at times (for example, by third grade, students should be able to recall all single digit sums and products by memory). It is essential that students be afforded with abundant practice in order to gain this fluency. This ability also serves in the development of mental math skills which students will find practical applications for in their life.

Chalk Talk: Early Action vs. Early Decision
Two of the most popular application types are Early Action (EA) and Early Decision (ED). They are both early, due in November, and both promise a fairly quick response, usually before the end of the calendar year. The biggest difference between the two is that Early Decision is a binding application, which means that students sign a contract agreeing to attend that college if accepted. Because of this, Early Decision applications have a significantly higher acceptance rate than Regular Decision applications. Early Action tend to be lumped in with these, but aren’t favored quite as much. Of course, Early Decision being binding could be a drawback for some. If a student is offered a better financial aid package, for example, but can’t take it because of applying Early Decision, this could be a real problem.
