Advanced Lesson Sequences

Scholaric now supports additional lesson sequences.

In addition to numeric ranges like this:

Lesson {1-10}

You can now use alphabetic ranges as well:

Section {A-G}

lower case works too:

Parts {a-d}

Some of our series have two sequences nested inside each other, like a letter (a-c) within a number (1-5)

Lesson 1 Part a
Lesson 1 Part b
Lesson 1 Part c
Lesson 2 Part a
Lesson 2 Part b
Lesson 2 Part c
Lesson 3 Part a
Lesson 3 Part b
Lesson 3 Part c
Lesson 3 Part a
...

To do this use

Lesson {1-10} Part {a-c}

These nested sequences introduce a new problem. For the above example, if you needed to continue (say you had limit of 10 lessons set), you will need to start the numeric (outer) range at 3, and the inner (alphabetic) range at b. But, the range of {b-c} applies only to the first sub-range for the rest, it needs to revert back to the full {a-c}, or you will skip Lesson 4 Part a.

We need a new syntax to cover this case. This is called seeding, which starts your inner series at a point other than the first value in the range.

Seeding is set by following your range with a colon and the seed value.

Lesson {3-10} Part {a-c:b}

This inner seeded sequence is b-c for Lesson 3, a-c for the rest.

Happy Planning

I like the Advanced Lesson Sequences, but I was wondering if there was a way of entering tests. I would like to use this for our math lessons, but there are tests after each lesson. Thank you for your help.
No, there is no current way to alternate text between a two sequences like that.
Can you skip weeks? For example, make lesson 1 on week 1 then skip week 2 and make lesson 2 on week 3?
Not at this time, sorry
