Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waynesboro District Curriculum
Mathematics, at Waynesboro Public School, begins with the students gaining a basic knowledge of the terminology that is used in this subject area. With this basic topic covered students begin to experiment with measurement. First they look at two objects and tell which is shorter or longer, they then begin to use measurement tools to find out how long something is, or how much it weighs. Measurement is then continued in the study of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus.
Children at Waynesboro Public Schools first begin to learn about science by exploring the world around them, animal and plant cycles or the different phases of water. As they mature, they take these lessons and apply them to topics such as the environment or ecosystems. When they enter middle school and high school they expand their science horizons by studying smaller and smaller parts of it, like molecules or atoms.

Chalk Talk: Understanding the Scientific Method
From the time children enter their first science class they are presented with the words “scientific method.” This term can leave the children and the parents confused. The scientific method is how science should be explored. The first step is to come up with a problem, or question that the scientist wants to explore. After this, a hypothesis needs to be formed. This is an educated guess as to what will happen in an experiment. When the experiment is completed the hypothesis will be found to be true or not. Next, a list of equipment needs to be formed. What is needed to complete the experiment? Then, come up with a procedure, or a step-by-step process that will occur in the experiment. Make sure to observe and record all data on the experiment next. This will help the scientist to come up with a conclusion. The conclusion is just a record of all that was done and the results from the experiment. Even though some outstanding discoveries were made without following the scientific method, it is a straight-forward approach to a scientific question that most students will have success with.
