The activities in the lessons are interactive. This means that you will have to use the knowledge you are studying, rather than just read it. You will connect to websites that help explain and give examples of the subjects you are studying. You type your answers and save them in your "portfolio." You can add to your answers, change them, or redo the lessons as often as you'd like.
Each workbook begins with a skills preview pre-test and evaluation chart to help students determine their strengths and weaknesses before they begin. "After You Watch" sections contain instruction, enrichment activities, and practice exercises. Both pre- and post-tests are followed by answer keys. Each workbook closes with a glossary, an index, and a reference manual containing explanations, formulas, document templates, and other useful items.
