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, a highly engaging digital 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.
Discovery Education's Math Techbook empowers our teachers to deepen students' understanding of mathematics and helps support the district's mission to prepare each child for lifelong learning and success.

These relevant, reliable digital textbooks are a welcome addition to classrooms and school districts that value 21st-century learning skills.2016 Review of Techbook
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 (not to brag or anything).

The biggest distinguishing factor about Math Techbook is how it saves teachers time. It allows them to receive and respond to student answers instantaneously, better assess student performance, and identify if someone is falling behind.
