Students have complete access to over 400 hundred different science and math lessons. Each one includes lesson materials along with “virtual lab” experiments called Gizmos which are “online simulations that power inquiry and understanding”. They are organized by academic standards, by grade level and topic or by textbook. You can also put in a keyword in the search box and browse that way.
Gizmos can be found by clicking on the FIND GIZMOS link at the top of the page. You can then search by topic or grade level or textbook or by keyword. Each Gizmo has the following included:
-Lesson Info Tab:
Student Exploration Sheet
-Gizmo Tab: Virtual lab experiments that can be run and rerun as many times as you’d like. Often times it will also have tables and charts to display the data collected from the lab tests that you run.
The Gizmo assessments can be taken online and results are given at which time they can be printed but the scores are not saved on the account.
This KOLA course does NOT include an at-home-tutor (parent) account.
