Students should have minimal computer usage skills (e.g. keyboarding, mouse, and operating system navigation) prior to starting this course.

Every chapter contains one or more hands-on activities that allow students to practice and demonstrate understanding of the lesson topics. A Windows or Mac OS computer is required for completion of the hands-on activities.

Course Planner

A typical school year consists of 36 calendar weeks or 180 days of school.

The course plan covers approximately 33 school weeks (164 days) of core material. Each chapter contains several hands-on "Work With Me" activities, lesson quizzes and a chapter test in addition to the listed Lab assignments. You may choose to add Supplemental Lessons as desired to meet state standards or student interest. Students may move faster or slower than the suggested pace.
