Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Parkland District Curriculum
The Math curriculum in Broward County Public Schools will develop students’ understanding of numerical relationships and improve their ability to devise and interpret equations and expressions. Real-world simulations and models will serve as techniques used to offset learning. At the kindergarten and elementary school level, students will learn how to recognize the components of math problems and will acquire basic strategies to help solve them. Middle and high school courses will challenge students to apply previously learned knowledge to more complex problems.
In grades K-5, the exploration of time and space, as well as basic laws and the foundations of government are emphasized. This knowledge is expanded upon in middle school, when the American political system, its economy, and more complex geographic concepts are studied. At the high school level, the focus of courses will include the rest of the world, in addition to the U.S. Honors and Advanced Placement courses are also available in many areas, including European History, Macro- and Microeconomics, and United States Government and Politics.

Chalk Talk: What’s in an Eye?
The eye has many parts that work together to let us see. Working from the outside in, the first eye structure is the sclera, which is the white part of the eye. The sclera is a tough covering that helps to protect the eye from injury. Next is the pupil. This is the black dot at the center of the eye and it allows light to enter the eye. The iris, or the colored part of the eye can constrict and dilate the pupil, allowing more or less light to enter. Another important eye structure is the cornea, a window that covers the front of the eye. The cornea has no blood vessels but many nerves, which makes it transparent and extremely sensitive. LASIK and other eye surgeries to improve sight often reshape the cornea for clearer vision. The last part of the eye is the retina. This structure is located at the back of eye and it captures the light that enters it, converts the light rays into electrical impulses, and sends them on their way to the brain.
