Possible Error in the HTML Scripts?

Hi, please correct me if I'm wrong or misunderstanding, but I think I came across an error in the way the js files are loaded into the HTML with the scripts (i.e. <script src = "js/Board.js"></script>).

Whenever creating the Board class, and subsequently calling the Space class in order to create spaces for the board, I kept getting an error in the console Uncaught ReferenceError: Space is not defined.

After trying a series of fixes, I finally found one that worked. I went to the HTML file, move the <script src="js/Space.js"></script> before <script src = "js/Board.js"></script> and it finally worked!

Is this an error in the way the program files were set up, or is there a different/better solution than what I did? It seems really odd that the JS files would have to be structed in a specific way, but I could not find a better solution. Thank you!
