Transform Misconceptions into Understanding
through Inquiry-Based Exploration
How does an animal grow larger—cell growth? cell reproduction?
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.
Winner of the 2014 Teachers’ Choice Award, Pathways: Science is an online, interactive approach to teaching the scientific method in grades 6, 7, and 8. Its 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 uses a consistent Predict-Investigate-Conclude process that promotes inquiry-based learning, critical thinking, and conceptual change.
Support Next Generation Science, Common Core ELA, and State Standards
Students learn to reach conclusions by comparing and contrasting information, determining central ideas, evaluating arguments, and analyzing evidence.
Integrate Content Easily with Teacher Support Tools
Extensive lesson guidance—flexible lesson plans, searchable standards correlations, and worksheets—saves preparation time for teachers.
