Prepare to Meet the Next Generation of Science Standards by Eliminating Misconceptions
How does an animal, such as a flea or a whale, grow larger?
Each of its cells divides repeatedly, producing two new cells each time.
What is inside bubbles when water boils—air? water molecules? nothing?
Water molecules. Boiling maintains the identity of a water molecule.
Created for grades, 6, 7, and 8, Pathways: Science is an online, interactive approach to teaching the scientific method. Its 10-step framework is ideal for project-based learning, teacher-led instruction, and STEM programs.
Focus on Misconceptions Systematically
With nearly 100 lessons tied to the curriculum, Pathways: Science helps students understand science through the use of articles, video clips, and pictures that challenge them to critically reflect on their hypotheses and predictions.
Engage Through Inquiry-Based Learning
A “probe” question followed by a step-by-step approach guides students through testing beliefs, digging for evidence, evaluating data, and reaching conclusions.
Integrate Content Easily with Teacher Support Tools
Interactive whiteboard and response pad-ready lessons include background information and guidance for flexible implementation.

Common Core Standards
- Read and comprehend informational texts.
- Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse forms of media.
- Integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g. in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph, or table).
- Compare and contrast the information gained from experiments, simulations, video, or multimedia sources with that gained from reading a text on the same topic.
