Fascinating Education offers online curricula for high school in Chemistry, Biology, and Physics. Dr. Margulies, a neurologist, developed these courses using an audio-visual technique to teach science in a step-by-step manner using plain English and clear illustrations. This “right-hemispheric” learning approach takes advantage of the brain’s ability to process images more efficiently and more effectively than just reading text.

Science just got easier!

In his science courses, Dr. Margulies:

  • Assumes students know nothing about chemistry, biology or physics
  • Slices the information very thin
  • Presents the material slowly and clearly – in plain English
  • Follows a story line
  • Shows how chemistry, biology and physics explain or solve real life observations or problem
  • De-emphasizes terminology

Fascinating Education makes each subject relevant to the learner, eliciting curiosity in an environment that is more interested in teaching you scientific principles than in making you memorize facts and definitions. This is a great alternative for anyone wanting to learn the sciences, prepare for a test, or prepare for an upcoming school year in advance…whether it’s chemistry, biology or physics.

A course from Fascinating Education is a quick study; useful for any student enrolled in public school, private school, home school, or just plain interested in science.

Included are lessons, scripts, online tests, access to pdf files for families that prefer to self-administer tests, and (for Chemistry) some labs. The illustrations used by Dr. Margulies are original and in many cases, animated to illustrate activity.

Dr. Margulies pauses several times throughout each course to provide “Catching our Breath” slides that provide easy breakpoints and reviews the material. He also ends each lesson with a “What you know so far” summary of the lesson.

Correlations have been done with the Next Generation Science Standards and every standard for these subjects is covered. Particular attention is paid to showing how each lesson explains everyday phenomena.

Each lesson lasts less than an hour, and each exam with its explanations takes another hour or so. With fewer than 20 lessons, each curriculum could be completed in as little as 40 hours; however, most students complete about a lesson per week.

Priced modestly and the curricula can be viewed by any number of children in a family. Reduced pricing for groups of students is also available.  Subscriptions are priced on an annual basis, with additional discounts provided for purchasing 2 or 3 courses.

 

Dr. Margulies has taught over 2500 medical students and residents using a visual based approach. Using the Fascinating Biology curriculum just 1 hour a week to teach 96 juniors at Dunbar High, Dr. Margulies was able to raise their prior 40% passing rate to an impressive 87% passing rate.

Dr. Margulies believes that seeing and hearing what the teacher is trying to convey makes science education so much easier than trying to decipher a textbook.  We think you’ll agree!
