# Recommended Course Sequences Guide

All of the Making Math Real courses are designed with a highly structured and sequentially developmental architecture. All of the content from each course emanates directly from the content of the course(s) that precede it. The following flowchart provides the **prescribed sequences** to maximize learning and integration for each course. The following recommended course sequences are not exclusive. For example, the elementary school sequence is also recommended for grades 1 through community college, and the middle and high school sequence is also recommended for grades 3 through community college.

**Mandatory Prerequisites**

Due to the highly developmental structure of the Making Math Real course content, there are several mandatory prerequisite courses. The Overview K-12 and the 9 Lines Intensive must be completed before enrolling in any other Making Math Real course. In addition, Fractions, Decimals & Advanced Place Value must be completed before enrolling in Pre-Algebra; and Pre-Algebra must be completed before enrolling in Algebra I; and Algebra I must be completed before enrolling in Algebra II. For the Geometry courses the 9 Lines Intensive, The 4 Operations & 400 Math Facts and Fractions, Decimals & Advanced Place Value must be completed before enrolling in Geometry Part I**;** and Geometry Part I, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra I must be completed before enrolling in Geometry Part II.

**Optional Course Sequences**

Since it is not always possible for course participants to schedule enrollment in Making Math Real courses according to the recommended sequences and how it aligns with the Calendar For Courses, you can take them as they become available, as long as you follow the required List of Prerequisites. Once the Overview and 9 Lines Intensive have been completed, course participants may immediately enroll in: The 4 Operations & 400 Math Facts, Fractions, Decimals & Advanced Place Value. The Overview is the only prerequisite required for taking the 9 Lines Intensive and Time & Money courses.
