Zearn Math's scope and sequence focuses deeply on a few interconnected math concepts, helping students build a strong mathematical foundation that lets them apply concepts flexibly to a variety of situations, contexts, and problems. These concepts are spiraled within and throughout grade levels in the curriculum, so students develop coherent understanding of the big ideas of math as they learn the content of their grade. This approach reflects the core instructional shifts many states have adopted: focus, coherence, and rigor.
Students learn these big ideas in two ways: Independent Digital Lessons and Small Group Lessons. In order to stay on track to complete all grade-level content over a 36-week academic year, students need to complete four Independent Digital Lessons and four Small Group Lessons every week. The scope and sequence of the Missions for each grade are outlined in the Curriculum Map, below. The Curriculum Map is also available for download.
