Good summary of what graphicacy is, especially early graphicacy in children. ￼

This definition of graphicacy￼ does not seem to be comprehensive enough to include spatial sense, but is an important subset, or component of, spatial sense and visualization￼. This definition of graphicacy seems to emphasize data visualization.

**Actually there is remediation, but it is just-in-time. There is corequisite support/remediation.

This sounds promising. Students do not like (or, equivalently, are not motivated) to take a semester-long remediation course.

Under this plan, the students *may* be taking a similar amount of math, but the (previous) pre-requisite is now a corequisite.
