PLATO science is wonderful. We were paying way more for the PLATO classes through an online program and are continuing them through the Co-Op.

My husband and I both hold advanced degrees in science and/or medicine and find the classes to be thorough, well designed, and require very little input from me (my son is in his third middle school class). This has been very positive for us, because I had not previously found a curriculum I like and had been teaching a lot of it myself, making tests, etc.

My son's strength is science and fini...(more)

We are using PLATO- Learning for Science this year. We love the course. It is very informative and interactive. The course is challenging but not overwhelming. We are doing Earth and Space Science this year. I hope to continue with it the other courses throughout middle school.

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
Plato middle school science is a great curriculum. I especially appreciate the way it makes abstract topics understandable through the use of animation rather than 1 dimensional photos of a textbook. It has made my job much easier.
D. Maulding, Co-op Member
My sons have enjoyed the Plato science program for over 4 yrs. They are extremely helpful to me because they engage them in a simulated, hands on way, on a regular basis, which has been a challenge for me to do consistently myself. They remember what they learn and they enjoy the lessons and challenges. I like how they aren't just memorizing facts but they are trying and experimenting for themselves. It is very comprehensive and thorough. I have given my kids the opportunity to choose their own science program and they chose Plato, hands dow...(more)

We use it to supplement our biology textbook and my son, who is 15, seems to like the way the information is presented. I would love a way to print tests out for records or to hand in to our charter school.
Jenny B., Co-op Member
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
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
My 8-year-old son did the Plato Science series. To be sure, he has an aptitude for science, but equally clear is that he is still a child and susceptible to frustration when something is not clear or accessible. Aside from occasional software glitches, however, we had no complaints--my son found them consistently enjoyable and rewarding.
The presentation of material was well organized, clear and engaging, with well-timed reviews and reinforcements of key concepts. For younger students, it also helps that the student's progress is visual...(more)

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)
