About This Course
This course provides students with access to a full range of introductory science topics, including information about Earth science, the environment, the human body, climate, and outer space. All of the information in the course has been neatly separated into chapters, and those chapters are divided even further into smaller, more manageable lessons. The course and chapter menus make it easy for teachers and parents to navigate through the course and direct students to various lessons.
How It Works
- Students who are curious about learning specific topics, like electricity or the properties of matter, can find the lessons they need by using the chapter menus.
- The personal user dashboard keeps students organized, monitors their progress, and makes recommendations on additional chapters or lessons to review.
- Self-paced lessons make it easier for students to grasp difficult concepts, like identifying the structural parts of the cell, or outlining the steps meteorologists use to predict and measure the weather.
- All of our materials are available online around-the-clock, so parents, teachers, and students can use practically any Internet-ready device to study lessons about valance electrons, light waves, or the endocrine system.
- Shorter lessons work better for younger students, because it's easier for them to stay focused, and students are more likely to retain what they learn.
Using the Course
Parents and teachers can assign various chapters to their students, if they so choose. By giving students access to our learning materials, students can guide themselves through our user-friendly platform and find the specific lessons they need to review for upcoming tests or to complete homework assignments.
