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)

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.

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. :)

I bought three of the PLATO programs during the first group buy,physical,life and earth and space, for my sons ages 10 and 12. We were unable to complete all three during the year and I am participating in the current buy. We were pleasantly surprised to find the programs are so thorough and in-depth. I will not say that my kids love these programs and beg to do them because that is not the case. Instead I will share with you what my 10 year old recently said about the programs. "They're not my favorite and it takes a lot of time to do it but I...(more)

We love Plato. It is perfect for our family. The content is comprehensive and complete. My daughter has scored exceptionally well on the ACT after taking these courses!
Jamie S., Co-op Member
Are you all as thrilled to have PLATO as I am? I waited 3 years to be able to use it! I found cybered products about five years ago and LOVED them! I have bought many products as stand alones but have waited abd longed for the day I could use a complete program. I am so pleased with the Chemistry and Life Science we have. The kids really like it alot. I love the interest level and the simplicity of the harder calculations in the chemistry. We really got a wonderful deal from PLATO and I am so grateful to all involved that made this product ava...(more)

We have used: Switched-On, Apologia, and Real Science 4 kids.

My daughter is currently using Plato-Learning and loves it! She has commented on how much she enjoys the high-quality animation. It seems to be both effective and entertaining.

I have a strong scientific background, and I am impressed with this program. I would highly recommend it!

Drawbacks? Access only during alloted time slots. [Editor's Note: 24 hour subscription options are available.] Lack of hands-on labs (you may want to supplement, but we are very content...(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.
Olivia, Co-op Member
We've completed our first PLATO class. Wow! This program is great! However, I must warn you. There is very little fluff and ALOT of meat in these courses. (More than I ever learned in school.) The material is presented in a very interesting manner. I highly recommend these products for jr/sr high students.
Suzannah Monser, Co-op Member
Wonderful program! We are a science family. Dad is a PhD organic chemist. Our 13 year old who loves science is doing very well with it independently - great for both mom and student. I struggled to find something appropriate for his age that would still be challenging since he knows so much, and this hit the mark perfectly! He loves his science time and of his own initiative enjoys teaching me in detail what he's learned when we're in the car. That shows me he's really absorbing the information, and that Plato's doing a great job explaini...(more)
