Conventional accelerated programs advance students by skipping content or entire grades. With current state 6–8 standards that are significantly more demanding than standards in place prior to 2010, this approach is creating significant knowledge gaps as students approach higher grade-level mathematics. IM 6–8 Math Accelerated thoughtfully compacts 6–8 content into two courses and does not skip any foundational concepts. As a result, it is possible to place students who are ready for acceleration on an accelerated pathway to Algebra 1 in grade 8 and achieve a solid K–8 mathematics foundation
