Why content resources are not structured by grade?

In designing the structure of our courses, we decided to use so-called linear approach. The selected model can cover all sections of the subject through the deep study of each topic as a separate lesson. The helical structure used in the development of training materials for traditional classes involves repetition of the same theme in different classes with a gradual complication. The choice of a linear structure is due to its universal character. Here, each structure is studied widely enough to allow the teacher to work creatively. No class and no tutorial but the skills of the teacher and the individual student's ability determine the level of immersion of each student in subject.

As far as materials (topics) of resources match with topics in the textbooks used in the school?

The content of our resources is significantly wider than school textbooks. They are not the application to any paper tutorial or textbook. It is an independent educational complex designed to complement and enhance traditional teaching practices.

Do the State general educational standards and Model curriculum resources materials match the materials of Ministry of Education?

- Our training resources are based on the school curriculum to help teachers in their work and provide an opportunity for students to interesting and effective self-study.

- Using a search engine or structural map you can find nearly any topic that interests you from the curriculum.

By developing our resources, we consciously did not rely on documents such as the State general educational standards and Model curriculum. Because they often change. In addition, many of our users, such as Nazarbayev intellectual schools and international schools do not oriented for these documents.
