Subscribed to Physical Science for my 9th grader. He was actually watching some of the videos at 11:00 pm the night our subscription ended. He wanted to get all he could from the program. Even my 5th grader learned a lot from the presentation. We are looking forward to purchasing our next PLATO course. The only problem...which one to buy.

I am using the plato science this year and doing Life, Physical, and Earth sciences. It will be hard to get all this done in a year because the lessons are pretty detailed espesically when you add things like I do. I use them as a springboard for ideas, I add microscope work and make use vocab quizzes using the Glossary included in the lessons. Over all, it gives a good overview of the lessons alone, but I like to go a bit deeper. I'm using it for an 8th grader who excels at science naturally. I belive this will help ground him with a basi...(more)

I am a curriculum junkie, so I've taken a look at a lot of science curricula. Plato has the best coverage of middle school science topics I've seen, and the kids love it. I can't recommend it highly enough. We can't wait to try the high school courses by Plato!

Linda B.,
We have used a number of PLATO learning courses over the years.

The middle-school level courses are very thorough. The voice speaks quite slowly, which bothered my kids a bit (probably done to accomodate English language learners), but the content was high level.

Where they shine is in the high school level courses. The content is very high. My kids are now taking an AP Biology class, and much of what they are studying was already covered in the PLATO program. With the available study guides that the students can print and complete, t...(more)

Plato Middle School science courses have been just right for our current homeschooling needs. Our son is able to watch the lectures and complete the questions with minimal reading, keeping him grade level in science and freeing me up to spend extra time tutoring him in language arts.

The PLATO Physical science presented concepts with clarity. Our boys really liked the interactive nature of the presentation and we appreciated the step by step progression to solidify their foundation with the curriculum we were using. We plan to use it again this year.

We have been using PLATO middle school science (Earth and life) for several months now with my finishing 5th and 3rd graders (she's quite accelerated). We all love it! The kids are engaged, learning tons, and NEVER complain - even though I make them outline the lessons before taking the Mastery tests, and "require" 90% on tests rather than the 80% considered mastery. Its a clear winner here!

I love the fact that it is rigorous, solid science (I am a physician), engages the kids without being full of games, bells and whistles, and that t...(more)

PLATO Learning is a great resource for homeschoolers! The quality of instruction is high. We will continue to use it for high school science, literature and math courses.
ND, Co-op Member
My 10 year old son has really enjoyed the Plato Life Sciences online course. Even though it can be very hard to hold his attention for any period of time, I've had no trouble with this program. That could be partly because it is online, partly because he can go at his own speed, but also because he enjoys the content and presentation. I did wonder if it might be too advanced for him, but clearly the course presenters understand kids capabilities very well. I rarely have to actively supervise while he's following the program, and you gotta lo...(more)
