Category Description for Alpha Omega Science:

LIFEPAC worktexts provide a complete, year-long science curriculum for each grade. From a Christian publisher, the approach is systematic mastery learning. It's very easy to teach from, with no need to write out lesson plans or prepare materials. You will have to gather equipment and materials for science experiments, however. Each grade contains 10 small consumable worktexts which the students progress through at their own pace. Each unit includes vocabulary, text, and comprehension questions to assure students retain the material. The science series is more activity-oriented than AOP's other subject LIFEPACs, with plenty of experiments to help illustrate science concepts. Grades 1-10 worktexts contain colorful illustrations; grades 11-12 are only available in black and white. Complete Boxed Sets also include a Teacher's Guide with teaching tips and answer keys. Sets of LIFEPACS only (no Teacher's Guides) are also available at each level for additional students.

I chose this curriculum because my daughter can be independent of me, and it corrects the work right away and I often get behind in checking her work.

Not user friendly.
Don’t like it at all. I’m sure the curriculum is good, but it’s just not easy to use, the computer format has been glitchy, It doesn’t seem to give him the corrections to practice problems that’s are incorrect. I’ve started reading hi, the lesson and asking him the problems after he told me it was asking questions that were not in the reading. He was right. Many times now after reading to the end of a lesson and beginning the problems, there are indeed questions that come up in the following lesson. Ok I’d think just read ahead and then do problems, but nope, the program generates a lesson in his work area after the problems from current lesson are all submitted. So. Nope. This definitely did not make life easier, I’ll be looking for something else for 8th grade science.

This program is so interesting that it will keep the attention of a child with a very short attention span It is truly one of the best science programs I have used and I recommend it to any homeschooling mom teaching more than one child
