The Plato program is very informational with its own built in assessment. It is user friendly and my son enjoyed using the program. He did well with it. I was refered to it by my sister who homeschools her child as well.
Anne, Co-op Member
The Plato courseware has been a gift for my 15 year old son. It is the first courseware that is age appropriate that engages him because it combines audio-visual learning and he gets to interact with it rather than passively read a textbook. I couldn't ask for more, as the homeschooling parent - Plato provides structures lessons, benchmarks progress, provides quizzes and mastery tests (which you can take or not). Very importantly, it allows my highschooler to be responsible for his progress. We hope Plato will always be available to the Co-...(more)

My son took the CyberEd Physics course last year, and learned notetaking skills, organizational skills, and study skills, as well as physics. It's an excellent product. He is currently taking the CyberEd courses for Chemistry and Life Science, and I have been planning to use the Earth Science and Biology courses next year. I very much hope you can arrange to continue the CyberEd program in some form, so we can continue to buy them.

This year, I did all the lessons for three CyberEd subjects: Earth Science, Physical Science, and Life Science. I really enjoyed them, and I think I learned a lot from them. They were more interesting than a text book, though not same as actually testing a hypothesis with a person in a lab. But I really enjoyed the graphics, and my parents liked the program, too. I appreciated the convenient features of this system, including the jump menu, calculator, and glossary.

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 Cybered presented the information in a more meaningful and memorable manner.
I must say that the Cybered experience was also more pleasant than the book only. I am looking forward...(more)

The earth science course was fantastic. I have been recommending it to all of my friends. It was informative, interactive, and entertaining. My boys wanted to do it everyday and were so exciting when it was their time slot and they could go online to learn more. We look at clouds differently now. They are no longer rain clouds, rather cumulonimbus clouds. My youngest stared drawing pillow lava in art class.

My son completed the Middle School Earth Science. He enjoyed the program, and definitely learned. Although we are not using it this year (that son is now in school) we will definitely consider it for son #2, and I have recommended it to friends.
K Lueth, Co-op Member
I love it! My 12 year old son is using the astromony portion of Earth Science and Space while my 14 and 16 year olds are using biology! I just today found the teacher's area and the quizes and tests are wonderful! I also like the worksheets although they are too long and detailed to print. I am using apologia books and have interspersed the CyberEd. It will be interesting to see which they prefer and which they learn more and easier from! They are enjoying the activities also. I also purchased Life Science and now just need to find time ...(more)

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 purchased both Algebra 1 as well as pre Algebra for my children. We have tried other disc math programs. Both children are finally getting it. This program helps the visual learner. Their grades are staying in the B range too. :)
