Math Techbook™ Digital Textbooks

Math Techbook is a highly engaging, digital math textbook that connects students to math through real-world problems worth solving. Using a balanced approach to instruction, Math Techbook combines conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and application to help all students develop a long-lasting mastery of mathematics.

One of the problems with math is – well, the problems. Traditional math problems are notoriously unrelatable and dull, so it’s no wonder students often ask, “When will I ever use this?” Let’s face it: if they’re referring to Suzie and the 42 ripe pumpkins she just picked from the pumpkin patch, they’ve got a point. We’ve solved this problem with Math Techbook, with resources that align to rigorous standards, provides real-time data to support differentiation, and supports students of all abilities.

The Discover, Practice, Apply cycle enables students to solve problems in more than one way using more than one modality. The Coach and Play features provide scaffolded support and instant feedback so students can quickly monitor their own progress. Students can highlight text, have text read aloud, and add their own sticky notes to solidify their understanding.

A Difference Maker for Any Math Educator

Math Techbook was designed with math educators in mind. It has the tools they need to create equitable and resonant learning experiences for every student, no matter what their teaching style is or how long they’ve been in the classroom. That’s why, in a 2016 SpotOn survey, Math Techbook was given the highest average score among 12 publishers and the highest average ratings in content, pedagogy, technology, and standards—and, it has been independently verified to meet the highest levels of mathematical rigor by

“Discovery Education really gets it when it comes to math instruction. Math Techbook is like no other product on the market. It’s got the right balance for teaching conceptual understanding and fluency, and it brings math to life through highly engaging applications. We no longer have a divide between kids who love math and those who loathe it. With Math Techbook, there’s a hook for every kid.”
