We are using PLATO for Life Science and are very pleased with the scope of the product. It is an excellent value and is presented in an engaging way. I hope to use PLATO for further science curriculums in the future.

My daughter has thanked me more than once for getting her this program. Last year we tried middle school life science, and she liked that one less. She is a highly gifted middle schooler, and we have really enjoyed this as an introduction to physics, chemistry. One problem with the way it is set up is that the "lecture" portion has a lot of information and they immediately use it for application and practice tests. Most students would need to take notes during the lecture to remember any of it. Overall, it has been a nice alternative for an...(more)

All I can say is "I Love this science program!" It offers great depth of material (I have learned a great deal and we're only on middle school), wonderful graphics and it's interactive. My kids really enjoy it. I like that it is very comprehensive so I never feel like the kids are missing anything. The only thing I have added to this program are some science project kits for some hands on experiments. We have used the program for 2 years and plan to use this program all the way through high school.

We love the PLATO Pre-Algebra course. My 7th grade daughter is using it and having great success. The tutorials are extremely thorough, and having the off-line extra worksheets have proven very useful.

I would definitely recommend PLATO math to other homeschoolers.
Amy W., Co-op Member
I've used this product with all 4 of our homeschooled children during upper elementary and middle school. The courses keep the kids engaged and their retention rate is fairly high. I would recommend this as a good basis for high school science. A high school level would be a great addition.
Karen, Co-op Member
My daughter has become interested and knowledgeable in chemistry thanks to Plato Science. It allowed her to learn at her own pace and stretch her mind. Not being well versed in science, I could not have taught this subject to her. I am glad you offered this science program at a price we could afford. We are definitely considering using Plato Science in the future.

Thanks for offering so many options to homeschoolers.

PLATO Algebra I has been a terrific program for my home-schooled children. The quality and clarity of the instruction is very good.
ND, Co-op Member
My son really enjoys the Life Science lessions. Having a visually based curriculum is such an asset. He was so excited to be learning about bacteria today. Lesson planning is very simple for me since each topic includes a lesson, an applications, and a test.
Erika P., Co-op Member
This is an exceptional program. My son used this for physical science and air/space 2 years ago. On standardized testing he has scored consistantly above the 80th percentile for the past two years. However, last year we used a book biology only with a dissection lab and on this year's testing he scored about the 50th percentile for that information. I deduce that PLATO presented the information in a more meaningful and memorable manner.
I must say that the PLATO experience was also more pleasant than the book only. I am looking forward to p...(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.
