A hallmark of AMS Weather Studies is the flexibility of course implementation. The course can be offered using any combination of the AMS Weather Studies textbook, eInvestigations Manual, and RealTime Weather Portal (course website). The course is adaptable to instructional settings ranging from traditional lecture/lab to hybrid to totally online and can be used on a variety of schedules, including semester/quarter, summer session, accelerated degree, or self-paced study. Course materials are designed for easy integration with course management systems. The most common approaches to using the course materials are:

1. Use the full AMS Weather Studies course package with emphasis on real-time weather - Instructors wanting to have their students study weather as it happens may choose to use the textbook, eInvestigations Manual introduction section, and Current Weather Studies prepared twice per week in real time on the RealTime Weather Portal. A license is required. Go to the Order Class Materials page for details on having your bookstore purchase the Weather Studies Student Package.

2. Use the Weather Studies textbook and eInvestigations Manual - Instructors wanting to prepare all materials prior to the start of the term may choose to use the textbook and eInvestigations Manual introduction and Applications sections. Website material is commonly used as a supplement in this approach. A license is required. Go to the Order Class Materials page for details on having your bookstore purchase the Weather Studies Student Package.

3. Use the Weather Studies textbook and RealTime Weather Portal - The Weather Studies textbook is ideally suited for introductory meteorology lecture courses in which students are not expected to complete the investigations series. The RealTime Weather Portal can supplement textbook study with current weather data, Daily Weather Summaries, Math Skills applications, and other resources. Go to the Order Class Materials page for details on having your bookstore purchase the Weather Studies Textbook and RealTime Weather Portal access for students.
