Educating Our Parents: Understanding the White Lake Township District Curriculum
As the nation pushes for students to take part in more STEM classes, Mathematics has become a huge focal point in these districts’ curriculums. Even at the Kindergarten level, students are already solving addition and subtraction word problems. As students move up in grade level, they will work on standards that include place value, fractions, multiplication, and division. Teachers use several different teaching strategies and approaches in order to help students reach mastery of these standards including games and technology.
When students enter middle school they should be fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics. In middle school, students will dig deeper into the fundamentals with topics such as negative numbers, linear equations, and writing equations. High school mathematics is more complex in that students take courses on certain strands instead of inclusive classes.

Chalk Talk: What Technology Is Used in the Classroom?
During the last twenty years there has been a dramatic change in the technology available in classrooms. Gone are the days of the overhead projector, slide reel, and chalkboard. As the world has seen giant leaps in technological advances, so have schools. An interactive white board is one of these advances that are being installed in most classrooms around the country. These boards take the place of televisions and overhead projectors. Teachers can use the boards to show videos, write notes, play games, and display textbooks. Another change in school technology is the use of computers. Where classrooms used to have one desktop computer, now classrooms are equipped with enough laptops for each student. A lot of schools have even enacted Bring Your Own Device policies that allow students to bring their own laptops or tablets to school. As technology advances, schools are striving to keep up so that students are exposed to the most up-to-date equipment and strategies.
