Each Concept Quest aligns with a single unit of instruction and consists of 12 tasks. The first six tasks are Excursion tasks, which serve to enrich students' experiences with the content of the unit. The six Adventure tasks extend students' thinking and provide opportunities to make connections to other important mathematical concepts.
Students may choose to work on the Excursion or the Adventure tasks in any order, providing they have completed all of the Excursion tasks before moving on to the Adventure tasks. They may even work on tasks and then put them aside for a time, as they work on other tasks or parts of the core mathematics curriculum.
