The Biological and Earth Systems Science CD-ROM offers a comprehensive take on the topics typically covered in a year-long biology course. Through the use of animations, video clips and colorful graphics, students are engaged and involved in studying important concepts to give them an understanding of biology, the central science. Short reading passages followed by graphics designed to engage, lead to a better understanding of biology. Students get immediate feedback to determine if they understand the material before moving onto new content. Students are invited to actively become involved in learning by interacting with the software. (Grades 9-12)
