HOUSTON, Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- YourTeacher, a leading digital publisher, recently announced the release of the world's first math textbooks for the flipped classroom, available on Apple's iBookstore.
Created with iBooks Author, YourTeacher's iBooks textbooks for Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Geometry allow math teachers to flip the classroom instantly. Each book features hundreds of whiteboard videos, thousands of practice problems with complete step-by-step audio explanations, hundreds of interactive multiple-choice self-tests, and much more.
According to Jill Stringer, one of the many teachers piloting YourTeacher's iBooks textbooks this year, "The books are being used to facilitate a flipped teaching classroom. The students are asked to watch the examples for the lesson outside of class, and then answer the self-test 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. My students prefer it to the standard textbook and we have had really good success with it. The examples are very good and my students are doing well! We presented it to our school board and they are very supportive and excited about it."
YourTeacher is in a unique position to become a key player in the flipped classroom movement. Over the past 12 years, the company has delivered a vast library of online math lessons to millions of students through its subscription website, its YouTube channel, its partnership with SylvanLearning, and its complete line of math apps. Now, all of this content and expertise has been brought to bear in the development of its initial line of math iBooks textbooks for the flipped classroom.
"The flipped classroom movement is taking off," states Mike Maggart, co-Founder and Director of Education for YourTeacher. "However, it's a huge amount of work for teachers to put together all the materials they need for a flipped classroom. Our solution is a 'turnkey' approach, where all of the content that a math teacher needs for a flipped classroom is built right into the book."
YourTeacher's iBooks textbooks for Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Geometry are now available at Apple's iBookstore, www.itunes.com/iBookstore/.
