Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oshtemo Township District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum in elementary school is intended to give students a strong foundation in the basic skills of the subject. Students will first learn to count forwards, backwards, and by twos, fives, and tens. They will then move on to the basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. By the end of elementary school, students should be able to perform all four operations with multi-digit numbers. Students will also learn place value to the hundred thousands place and will be required to write numbers in standard and word form.
The high school Mathematics curriculum is more complex and specific to each subject than what students experienced in elementary school. Courses in high school can include Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus, Statistics, and Geometry. There are also different difficulties of each course available. For example, students can choose to take Advanced Placement versions if they perform well in the subject or remedial versions if they have difficulty.

Chalk Talk: Summer Science Fun
Keeping students engaged in learning over the summer can be a difficult task. However, the summer season happens to be a great time to explore some scientific theories. With the temperatures rising in the summer, it is a good time to let younger students experiment with the heat and how it affects certain materials. This can be as simple as taking some ice, chocolate, water, and other objects out into the sun and observing them over a period of time to see how they react to the heat of the sun. Another fun idea is to explore Oceanography topics by visiting a local beach to discover the animals and plants of the habitat. To add to the fun, take along a camera to take pictures of interesting finds that you can later research online. Older students can test the laws of physics by going to an amusement park and riding the large roller coasters. It’s always interesting to see how those laws are used in creating rides to make sure they are safe.
