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, Investigations Manual, and 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, Investigations Manual introduction section, and Current Weather Studies prepared twice per week in real time on the Course Website. A license is required for this option. Go to the Order Class Materials page for details on having your bookstore purchase the Weather Studies Textbook and Investigations Manual package for students.

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

3. Use the Weather Studies textbook alone - The Weather Studies textbook is ideally suited for introductory meteorology lecture courses in which students are not expected to complete the investigations series. Textbook-only users have access to a special Internet website that will deliver the Daily Weather Summary, current weather products, and Math Skills applications. The textbook contains chapter review and critical thinking questions. Course instructors receive a complementary textbook and faculty resource CD. A license is not required for this option, but please contact us to request a faculty set of materials. Go to the Order Class Materials page for details on having your bookstore purchase the Weather Studies Textbook for students.
