I purchased the whole complement of Plato and my daughter uses it to round out the science material from her textbook. I like the fact that this system could stand alone on its own merits. If one chose not to purchase a textbook and workbook, your student could learn science just as easily by this method, and visiting the libary to check out books on the subject in particular. I like the fact that my daughter can take a quiz and determine for herself, if she really understands the material. I think it is an excellent product and hope that it is...(more)

PLATO has made a huge difference in our daily science adventures. The program makes science jump off the page and brings this very important subject to life. No more 2 dimensional boring textbooks for us! The kids love the pictures and the interactive nature of the lessons, I love the organized manner in which the curriculum is presented. It makes learning easy. Thanks so much for allowing us to participate in this program! I hope this will be available to us for many years to come!

I used the PLATO Earth&Space science program to supplement the science program that was a part of our homeschool curriculum for my 6th grader. All of the topics in the homeschool curriculum were covered by the PLATO program. The PLATO program went much deeper though. The PLATO program is great. It engages the learner with good graphics and audio presentation. It gives students the option to repeat small sections or to go deeper on one part of a topic or skip part with a click of the mouse.The program offers application activities that have the ...(more)

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)

We are liking the Plato 9th grade science course. The way the material is presented makes it easy to understand. The material is delivered in multiple formats to reinforce the concepts presented and help achieve mastery. We are happy with this product and plan to continue using Plato courses in the future.

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)

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.

This is the first science curriculum product I have found that both engages and challenges my young gifted student. The real life scenarios are an excellent application tool. I highly recommend it!

My daughter finally enjoys doing science. This program is perfect for her visual and hands on learning style!
Margarette, Co-op Member
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.
