Math Techbooks offers interactivity to boost student engagement.
Discovery Education has announced that it will expand its digital textbook series to include mathematics. The Math Techbook is the latest addition to the company’s Techbook line, which now includes K-12 science and middle school social studies offerings.
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.
“Mooresville students have been using the Discovery Education Techbook series and have seen great results. It has brought instruction alive for our teachers and increased students’ engagement and interest,” said Mooresville Graded School District’s Superintendent and the American Association of School Administrators Superintendent of the Year, Mark Edwards.
