Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wixom District Curriculum
Walled Lake Consolidated Schools include geometry as a part of their mathematics curriculum. The math included in this course center around shapes, and angles. From the early grades, students learn to recognize basic shapes by their appearance. As they progress they learn how to measure different parts of the shape and how to find missing angles. They also learn how to create triangles and circles from formulas. Each of these skills help build students confidence as problem-solvers.
Walled Lake Consolidated Schools include the subjects of biology and chemistry in the science curriculum. In each of these the students begin by looking at the living systems and elements from their general appearance. In the later years they look at the systems or cycles which are included in each of these. In biology this includes the study of DNA, populations and bacteria. In chemistry they learn about calculating energy and solubility. By looking beyond the surface of items, the students see there is so much more to learn.

Chalk Talk: Who To Ask for a Recommendation
Most colleges want at least one recommendation for each applicant, and many want two or even three. Two is a good average to shoot for, but it’s important to research guidelines early to make sure more aren’t required. Recommendations should come from classroom teachers who’ve had the applicant in class junior and senior year. If they’ve had experience with the applicant in some other manner, like as a coach, that’s great, but they must have also taught the student, preferably in a core class. The question is who to ask for a recommendation. This depends on whether the student knows what they want to study. If the applicant has a major, then ask a teacher from a class that follows that major.
