Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Dundas District Curriculum
The curriculum allows teachers to use any instructional approach that is appropriate to teach a topic to their class and allows for students to pursue independent studies of their own design. The outcomes which teachers look for are students' ability to understand material, demonstrate their understanding and apply their knowledge. Each subject requires that students are able to show this progress from understanding to application, ensuring that students have achieved the expectations.
The mathematics curriculum leads students to the path of becoming proficient in using number and equations. From the early years students use manipulatives to help understand counting and then simple addition and subtraction. By the middle years the students have progressed to solving equations with missing factors. By the time they graduate they will have the opportunity to master advanced algebra, trigonometry, statistics and calculus.

South Dundas District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local schools follow the Ontario Curriculum which is the broad plan for student learning, instructional planning, and assessing both learning and instructional proficiency. Subjects are broken down to the grade-level expectations for learning and subject knowledge is built from elementary school to high school. This process is designed so that students are given a strong base of academic knowledge from which they are able to pursue a wide range of curricular options once they are in their high school years.

Chalk Talk: What Are Students' Learning Styles?
Essentially, there are three different learning styles: auditory, kinesthetic and visual. What this means is that most people learn in one of three ways, or by combining more than one of these styles. Auditory learners are highly capable at processing and understanding the information which they hear. Kinesthetic learners do well with processing and understanding information once they have physically interacted with it through a hands-on activity. Visual learners are strong at processing and understanding information presented visually, such as text and visual stimuli. Each style requires different instructional approaches to access the different entry points.
