Discovery Education, a leading provider of K-12 digital textbooks in the U.S., announced today the expansion of its digital textbook series to include mathematics.
As the latest addition to the company’s Techbook line, which now includes K-12 science and middle school social studies offerings, Math Techbook aims to create a full suite of digital solutions for today’s classrooms.
In response to input from educators across the country, Discovery Education’s first Math Techbooks, launching in 2014, will address middle and high school mathematics subjects with six specific courses: 6th, 7th and 8th grade math, and Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry for high school.
Built in conjunction with a team of experts, including educators, students and technologists, Discovery Education Math Techbook will provide students interactive, engaging learning experiences that help support their procedural skills, fluency, understanding of theoretical mathematics concepts and ability to solve real-world problems.
Cloud-based and platform neutral, Techbook works in tandem with any school district’s technology infrastructure and existing hardware – iPads, tablets, mobile devices, laptops or desktops – making it a cost-effective alternative to both traditional textbooks and other digital solutions.
Already in use by more than 500,000 students across the country, Techbook provides students with the skills to be college and career ready, according to Discovery Education.
