As of the 2017-2018 school year, Pre-Pre-Algebra, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra are "bookless". In place of a traditional text book, there is searchable glossary/reference tool and online lesson assignments.
Searchable Glossary/Reference Tool:
Students can search for a concept, term, problem type, etc. and they will get a page about that thing. Depending on what was searched for, there could also be a brief example or two showing the technique, and some additional notes about the process, term, etc. All material will be directly correlated with the course content. This allows students to quickly reference terms, techniques, etc. that they might normally look up in a book.
Online Lesson Assignments:
Previously, students would refer to the book for problems to do for homework assignments, then correct those assignments using hand-written answer keys. Now, they will do assignments in a way that is similar to how they currently do Infinite Math™
. All of the work is shown for each problem, along with notes about the process. Additionally, there are .pdfs available with just the questions and answers.
, Algebra II
, and Pre-Calculus
, you can see the textbook being used for each class along with other class-specific information by visiting each course's page. Keep in mind that the role of the book is not instructional. Instruction happens via LIVE sessions. The book is used for doing assignments and occasionally looking at a sample problem.
