We have been using PLATO middle school science (Earth and life) for several months now with my finishing 5th and 3rd graders (she's quite accelerated). We all love it! The kids are engaged, learning tons, and NEVER complain - even though I make them outline the lessons before taking the Mastery tests, and "require" 90% on tests rather than the 80% considered mastery. Its a clear winner here!

I love the fact that it is rigorous, solid science (I am a physician), engages the kids without being full of games, bells and whistles, and that t...(more)

I was looking for a science offering for my daughter, who is 10. The middle school science curriculum we had tried before was too dumbed down both in terms of the content, and how it was presented. PLATO science has been very good for us. It is rigorous and challenging, and yet still presented in an engaging way. It also stresses higher order thinking rather than just memorization. I think it is a good fit for gifted or accelerated students. While most of the lessons are on-line, there are also several off-line activities. These are "worksheet"...(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.

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 PLATO. 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 to ...(more)

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. :)
Joanna, 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 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)

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)

My teens are both using the PLATO online science courses and we all love them! The friendly voices explaining the scientific concepts, the easy-to-understand videos and the idea-reinforcing hands-on portions have got them enjoying science again! No more boring textbooks for us! They are learning a lot more now and enjoying it!
Jeanne, Co-op Member
We have used a number of PLATO learning courses over the years.

The middle-school level courses are very thorough. The voice speaks quite slowly, which bothered my kids a bit (probably done to accomodate English language learners), but the content was high level.

Where they shine is in the high school level courses. The content is very high. My kids are now taking an AP Biology class, and much of what they are studying was already covered in the PLATO program. With the available study guides that the students can print and complete, t...(more)
