HOUSTON, Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- YourTeacher (www.yourteacher.com), a leading digital publisher for the K-12 math market, is thrilled to announce the inclusion of their iBooks textbooks in Park County School District #1's continuing iPad initiative. YourTeacher's Algebra 1 iBooks textbooks will be used by students at Powell High School throughout the 2012-2013 school year in place of a traditional Algebra textbook.
Park County School District #1 began their iPad program during the 2011-12 school year by purchasing enough iPads for every student and teacher in K-12. This innovative district will now add critical content in the form of YourTeacher's iBooks textbooks in order to continue bringing out the power of their iPads. "The books are being used to facilitate a flip teaching classroom. The students are asked to watch the examples for the lesson outside of class then answer the self-check questions on their iPads. The next day instead of having to teach the lesson we reinforce the concept with some type of class discussion and activity" said Jill Stringer, math teacher at Powell High School.
"We are excited about the layout of this book and that it is student and teacher friendly. This book facilitates the integration of the Common Core standards and shows what standard is being met for each lesson. The videos explain concepts very well and are short. The practice problems and worksheets include solutions so students who struggle with the concept can see the steps required to solve the problem at home and with their parents. This is a big move to step away from the traditional methods of teaching mathematics and introduce students to a more problem solving 21st century math."
According to Charlie Hermes, CEO of YourTeacher, "We applaud Park County School District's visionary initiative to use YourTeacher iBooks textbooks to move beyond the limitations of traditional textbooks and help their students succeed in math." Hermes adds, "YourTeacher is very excited to be part of such a progressive educational experience in one of the nation's most innovative school districts and we look forward to seeing our iBooks textbooks play a strong role in helping to provide comprehensive math instruction."
