The Exploring Creation With Physical Science Full Course CD-Rom is a junior high school multimedia course. This version of the course has all of the information found in the print version, PLUS the content of the Companion CD, which is multimedia add-ons such as animations, short videos, narrations, and audio pronunciation guides. The student reads the text from the screen and follows links to multimedia enhancements. It does NOT read the text aloud. The answers to the On Your Own questions are NOT saved.
The course looks just like a website, which makes it very familiar to most students. There is a navigation frame to the left which allows you to choose any module and any section of the course. The content of that portion of the course will then appear on the right-hand frame. There are animations and videos throughout the course, which make the material fun and interesting. Technical words are also pronounced for the student.
There are instructions for conducting hands-on experiments throughout the CD so that the student can have a true laboratory-based science course. All of the materials needed for these experiments are common, household items. There are study guides and tests for every module in the course, and the answers are provided as well. Located on a separate CD that is included with the course, these materials can be printed out so that the student can use them and the parent/teacher can grade them.
