A student's Journey is the default experience for students, based on their grade level placement. It is a set of sequenced objectives focused on a specific grade level that is optimized for conceptual scaffolding. The objectives have been curated by mathematicians, neuroscientists, teachers, and our curriculum experts that is designed to guide students through their entire grade level. A student's journey is prioritized to emphasize major new topics for the grade level. Overall, the path applies the following factors in its design:
- Content Dependencies: There are a number of content dependencies within a grade level. The Journey respects this sequence.
- Topics of Major Focus: There is a high emphasis placed on the topics of major focus of the grade level, ensuring students first get a Spatial Temporal experience with the critical topics of the grade level.
- Topic Spiraling: Rather than massing all the topics of the grade level, the Journey spirals through topics, ensuring students get key exposure to critical topics before going deeper within each domain.
