Wednesday, April 26, 2017 -- Madison Michell

Ever wonder what the people behind Edmentum’s award-winning curricula think of the content they have created? To answer this question, members of our curriculum team have selected 10 of their favorite questions from our brand-new K–8 solution for individualized learning, Exact Path, in an effort to showcase some of Edmentum’s best content and explain what we like most about it.

We hope that as students and teachers dig into this new product, they will discover not only the myriad of possibilities that Exact Path opens up for individual learners but also the richness of each parcel of content itself. Our writers, curriculum developers, and instructional designers who worked to write and design each question and lesson poured their love for the subject matter, their appreciation of the needs of students, and their amazing attention to detail into all of these items.
