This CD-ROM version of Exploring Creation with Physical Science has all of the information found in the print version of the course, plus multimedia add-ons such as animations, videos, narrations, and audio pronunciation guides.
Study guides and tests (found on the 2nd CD) may be printed out for students to answer on paper. Answers are available to parents on the 2nd CD for manual grading.
The course uses the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser, but it does not use the Internet. Everything you need is contained on the CD-ROMs. Microsoft Internet Explorer is utilized as the user interface because it is easy to operate and is familiar to most students.
This is a complete course, not a supplement. Includes two CD-ROMs.
