All middle school students will use Discovery Education’s Math Techbook

math-techIllinois’ Mundelein School District 75 and Discovery Education are launching a new partnership bringing Discovery Education’s new digital math textbook to all middle school students district-wide.

The Math Techbook intends to transform the way students and teachers experience math through engaging instructional strategies and real-world problems that motivate and excite students with diverse learning styles, according to the company.

Seeking to improve access to educational technologies and more deeply integrate technology into classroom instruction, District 75 recently released a new technology plan that, when implemented, will create additional differentiated instructional opportunities for students, add depth to their learning and conceptual understanding, and help close achievement gaps district-wide. Discovery Education is supporting District 75’s efforts to achieve these goals by providing all educators and students in grades 6-8 access to the Discovery Education Math Techbook.
