Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newark District Curriculum
Students are taught to think mathematically and to master mathematical operations, fractions, and decimals while applying these skills in solving problems and reasoning abstractly. Mathematics learning is more analytical and hands-on to help students understand the reasoning behind the process and the answers they obtain while working through problem-based scenarios. The Common Core focuses more on real-world applications and having students understand that the math they are learning is relevant to them now and in the future.
Reading is at the core of the English/Language Arts curriculum. Students read and interact with a wide variety of selections. This curriculum includes all genres and more in the non-fiction area than ever before and analyzing more critically. Writing is also a central component of the curriculum and students are expected to learn techniques to write opinion pieces, analytic essays as well as other formats.

Chalk Talk: Finding the Area of a Rectangle
In order to find the area of a rectangle, you multiply the length of the base times the length of the height. The area of a rectangle can be found by multiplying the base times the height. If a rectangle has a base 6 inches long and a height of 4 inches, its area is 6*4=24 square inches. If a rectangle has a base 10 inches long and a height of 2 inches, its area is 10*2=20 square inches.
