Merritt Island District and Curriculum
From mathematics to language arts to social studies, Brevard Public Schools ensure that students receive an education that covers an array of topics and prepares them to be both functioning and contributing members of society. In social studies, kindergarten students begin by learning about their community and how they fit into it. As they advance in grade level, students move on to topics that incorporate more of the world, such as U.S. and World History, Geography, Economics, Sociology, and Anthropology. Student presentations, research projects, and the use of technology are all used to support the learning process.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Merritt Island Lakes District Curriculum
Language arts courses seek to improve writing, speaking, and listening skills, as well as ensure the proper application of language in a variety of situations. This is accomplished through the use of increasingly complex texts and passages, applied research, and collaborative discussion between peers. Students begin their education by learning about the basic components of standard English grammar, phonics, and how to answer questions using information provided in given texts. As they progress in their education, students will begin to analyze author viewpoints and more intricate representations of subjects.
Students also have the opportunity to choose from a variety of foreign languages to expand their awareness of other cultures and their history. Spanish, German, Italian, and French are offered at most schools and many offer non-Romance languages as well, including Japanese, Russian, and Turkish. Foreign language courses require students to engage in social interactions and use basic to advanced language skills to support the acquisition of the target language. A variety of media and texts are used to present vocabulary and other needed information.

Chalk Talk: How to Achieve a Great Score on the Math Section of the SAT/ACT
The math sections of the SAT and ACT cover four math topics: numbers and operations, algebra, geometry, and data analysis, statistics, and probability. The questions become more difficult as you move on and there are three sections total. Most of these questions are multiple-choice but there are a few fill-ins. Although strategies will help with this section of the test, it is crucial that you also know how to do the math that is required. Some formulas are provided on test day but you should already have these memorized, if possible. Going back and forth to the formulas and the questions is a good way to waste time. Although some resources may suggest spending a specific amount of time on each question, this should depend on the individual and the question they are answering. More time may be needed for more difficult questions. Time is one of the important factors when it comes to achieving a great score. Knowing how to analyze and find shortcuts to problems can be a great help when it comes to maximizing the use of your time.
