Educator Feedback

We gave educators a sneak peek of Discovery Education Math Techbook and this is what they had to say:


"It exceeds what I imagined! It's important for my students to be able to work at their own pace and ability and Math Techbook does this."

"The sequence supports understanding by reviewing, allowing practice, and challenging the students. The manner in which the concepts are presented create interest and I can't wait to present this to my students."

"I really like how it begins with something visual and leads students into concepts with an inquiry oriented approach."

"We can't keep teaching math the same way and expect different results. We need to put students at the center of their learning and ensure that they truly understand math concepts. And we need to show them that math is relevant and important in their lives. Math Techbook does this."
