Using the Course
We've designed this course so that it's easy to navigate for students who are struggling with Earth science concepts. Check out the two most popular options to decide which best fits your needs:
- Start at the beginning with a review of what the study of Earth science entails, and advance through the chapters and lessons in order until you reach the last lesson on changing natural phenomena. Lessons follow a natural progression, making this option simple to follow along.
- Identify Earth science topics you find most difficult, and skip the material you already know. If you only need to study ecology and ecosystems, you can go straight to that chapter. Though some lessons might refer to topics in previous lessons, each one is designed to stand alone to make sure you get all of the info you need to understand a topic.
Simply follow these steps, and you'll be on your way to mastering Earth science!
- Start at the beginning or find the chapter subjects or lesson topics you need to learn about.
- Open a lesson and play the video.
- Test your understanding of the material using the short lesson quizzes and chapter exams.

- Go to the next lesson in the chapter to continue learning.
