disappointed w/ on-line segment
After using their Biology and Chemistry texts and really enjoying all the extras that came with the on-line component, I was greatly disappointed with the Earth Science on-line reference. Biology and Chemistry both had the teacher's ed on-line (which helped tremendously with textbook questions, along with some great videos for the student to watch. The Earth Science had none of this, not sure why it was not set up the same way. The text, itself, is written well and keeps my son's attention. Great content. Just wish the on-line component was the same as their other subjects.

Common Core Science Text
Holt McDougal Earth Science is a student textbook with an interactive online edition. The layout of the text is in full color and is 1036 pages in length. The scope and sequence of Earth Science is as follows:
Studying the Earth: Introduction to Earth Science, Earth as a System, Models of the Earth
Composition of the Earth: Earth Chemistry, Minerals of the Earth’s Crust, Rocks, Resources and Energy History of the Earth: The Rock Record, A View of Earth’s Past
The Dynamic Earth: Plate Tectonics, Deformation of the Crust, Earthquakes, Volcanoes
Reshaping the Crust: Weathering and Erosion, River Systems, Groundwater, Glaciers, Erosion by Wind and Waves
Atmospheric Forces: The Atmosphere, Water in the Atmosphere, Weather, Climate
Oceans: The Ocean Basins, Ocean Water, Movements of the Ocean
Space: Studying Space, Planets of the Solar System, Minor Bodies of the Solar System, The Sun, Stars, Galaxies, and the Universe
The textbook also includes Why It Matters, Labs Maps in Action and Standardized Test Prep for each chapter. The online interactive subscription, which comes with the purchase, includes the student/teacher texts, eActivities, student and teacher resources, worksheets, quizzes, tests, lab activities and videos. The online subscription comes in the form of an access code which is sent to you via email. The online subscription is active for one year from the purchase date, but a renewal can be purchased. Please note there are times when the online subscription from Holt Mc Dougal is down for maintenance, which can effect a student’s school day.
When all is said and done, it comes down to this: Holt McDougal Earth Science is a public school text book. The text is teacher driven, not student directed. The premise of the text is the Common Core agenda authored with a progressive bias. In the end, our high school student decided to give this text a pass in favor of Power Basics Earth and Space Science, Wiley’s Self-Teaching Geology and Astronomy Guides along with the Janice Van Cleave’s Earth Science for Every Kid, A+ Projects in Earth Science, Rocks and Minerals, Earthquakes, Solar System, Volcanoes, and Weather.

Do the interactive online edition come with worksheets, labs, assessments, tools and videos. Also, will a code be provided with the purchase of the online edition to access this information?
Lynette J on Nov 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The online edition includes 30 multiple choice tests which are graded through the website. I had hoped for more activities, but the tests are adequate. Rainbow Resource sends the book to you, and when your student is ready to start, you need to contact Rainbow Resource to let them know that you're ready for the code. RR contacts Holt McDougal, which then will send to you a link to the site, as well as the code necessary to activate the account.
Does the online teachers edition have worksheets, tests, and answers?
A shopper on Aug 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does have each of those. However, I found the online component cumbersome to navigate and the format means each of these are several pages long so you will do tons of printing to produce those worksheets & tests for your student. I was extremely disappointed in the product and would not recommend it to anyone considering purchasing it.
grades typically taught? high school level material or more middle? conflict to agree with Christian worldview?
nHontas on Sep 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a high school text. There is another text from this publisher for middle school. The online package is only multiple choice tests, which you do not grade. This is fine for my high school child, but if I use the text during a different school year for another child, I probably will try to find a Teacher's Manual with printed tests and an answer key. The text is not a "young earth" text, but we have explained to all of our children that both young earth and old earth scientists cannot fully explain their positions with science only. Many Early Church Fathers do not interpret a literal seven days of creation.
