Expolring Creation with Physics Video Instrcution DVD-ROM
September 11, 2015
This DVD-ROM (yep it's just one) must be used with an internet connection and download. The "videos" are not accessible directly from the DVD, you have to access them while in a web browser. To call them videos is not quite accurate as it is more like a bad powerpoint with a voice over. The voice is had to listen to and the quality is poor. The Experiment videos are actual videos showing the experiment in progress, but there is no explanation of what was observed or anything. I was so disappointed in this, and with the price we paid I'm more than a little upset. It was a huge waste of money. If I could return it I would, but as it is opened I'm stuck with it.
Confused by the other review, we find these instructional sessions invaluable. We previously used the Chemistry DVD-Rom, and now have used the Physics. It was so helpful to have a difficult subject explained in different words, and also good to be able to see how the experiments were done. For our family, this is essential. My son has a firm grasp on the concepts of Physics and the DVD-Rom was an integral part of that process. The other review said the video is not well done....we also disagree. It is very straightforward and helpful.
We've used Apologia for years & LOVE it. Thought the DVD would be a great companion to text. I was very disappointed: before we got through 1 session, my son said he could learn it better without the DVD - said he felt it was wasting his time. We stuck with it for a few more, but it did not improve. I'm sure the instructor knows his material well, but is not a good public speaker & the DVD is not very well done. If the price had been more like $20 I still wouldn't have felt I had my money's worth, but @ least would not feel like I had wasted such a large amount of money. NOT up to Apologia's standards.
