Students are not engaged by boring, static textbooks, which can cost more than $100. At School Yourself, we're reinventing the textbook by creating the world’s most immersive and interactive books in math and science for middle and high school students, and we're selling them for under $5. We've already launched our first three ebooks on Apple's iBookstore: "Trigonometry," "Hands-On Precalculus," and "Hands-On Calculus."
Our ebooks redefine what a textbook can be, featuring dozens of touch-based interactive demos and hours of animated video. And our three ebooks are now the three highest-rated math textbooks on Apple's online store.
We're hard at work on more hands-on ebooks covering probability, statistics, and physics. Most students think of these subjects as too dry or too challenging, but we're changing all of that. At School Yourself, we've developed brand new ways to interact with textbooks, by recreating the ideal 1-on-1 tutoring experience in digital form. This seamless experience allows students to get their hands dirty with fun interactives, watch short but engaging videos, and answer questions, all at the same time. So say goodbye to watching hour-long lectures or even 10-minute videos online -- our books are like having your own virtual tutor.
We think that all students should have the solid STEM foundation they need for today's world, and so we're dedicated to making our content as accessible as possible. That's why our ebooks are all priced under $5. And in the coming months, we'll be launching versions of our ebooks on other tablet devices (beyond the iPad) and online.
We can talk about our products all day, or you can just see them for yourself! Download our books to your iPad, or try out a free online demo of "Hands-On Calculus" on our website. By re-imagining how educational content can be conveyed, we're bringing the magic of math and science alive for a generation of students accustomed to interactive media.
