Developed by Discovery Education’s team of expert math educators, with the input of teachers and administrators from across the country, the digital text features dynamic, Common Core and state standards-aligned content, interactives, videos, digital tools, and game-like activities that increase students’ motivation to learn math. Useful student tools including a graphing calculator, geometry tool, whiteboard tool and matrix solver are also embedded into each Techbook. In addition, students interact with content in a manner familiar and exciting to them, and can monitor their own progress in real-time with the Student Dashboard.
