SILVER SPRING, Md., Jan. 04 /CSRwire/ - Following a comprehensive evaluation, the South Carolina State Board of Education has approved the Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 editions of Discovery Education’s Math Techbook for statewide use as a core instructional resource through its state adoption process. South Carolina’s adoption of the Math Techbook empowers the state’s school systems to use State Board of Education approved instructional materials funding to purchase and integrate this innovative digital curriculum into teaching and learning.

Currently used by approximately 5.6 million students across all 50 states and Canada, Discovery Education’s award-winning Techbooks are fully interactive, comprehensive digital textbooks.  Updated regularly at no cost, the South Carolina Math Techbook is 100 percent aligned to South Carolina College-and Career-Ready Standards for Mathematics and provides educators detailed lesson plans, embedded formative assessments, hands-on activities, digital simulations, and robust teacher supportsthat immerse students in instruction.

Through interactive features that change the reading level of text and enable text to be read aloud, the Math Techbook encourages all learners. The Math Techbook adopted by the state of South Carolina also connects students to mathematics through real-world problems worth solving, combines conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and application to help all students develop a long-lasting mastery of mathematics.  The Math Techbook has been independently verified by EdReports.org to meet the highest levels of mathematical content and pedagogy.

“The South Carolina State Board of Education’s adoption of the Math Techbook will help educators make math more exciting and engaging for students across the state,” said Vice President of Education Partnerships Rob Warren.  “The team at Discovery Education thanks the Board of Education for their rigorous review of the Math Techbook, and we look forward to working with South Carolina’s teachers and administrators to bring this exciting digital curriculum to students.”

The Math Techbook is the latest Discovery Education digital curriculum to be approved by the South Carolina State Board of Education. In 2016, the state adopted the Chemistry and Physics editions of the Science Techbook and 2015, the elementary and middle school Discovery Education Science Techbook courses, as well as the Biology course for high school, were adopted.

Educators using the Math Techbook will be supported by the Discovery Education Community as they transform students’ learning experiences with dynamic digital media.
