The CK-12 Basis is a superb non-profit group. Just lately they launched a number of free Kindle ebooks about Arithmetic. Presently within the Kindle retailer you will discover the next CK-12 Basis math titles, all priced at $0.00:
Superior Chance and Statistics
From a cursory look it will appear that the content material of those ebooks is fairly strong and definitely value testing. Whereas offering free math books isn’t a brand new idea, having stated books formatted in your Kindle is a serious plus (although there are a couple of issues about their legibility within the critiques; these factors are being addressed by the muse).
Extra textbooks can be found on the CK-12 Basis website, which lets you customise the content material of a textbook by means of their intriguing “FlexBook” system. In their very own phrases:
Conventional textbooks are each costly and inflexible. FlexBooks conform to nationwide and state textbook requirements. They’re free, straightforward to replace and straightforward to customise. With FlexBooks, you possibly can customise your textbooks to assist your progressive work within the classroom. The CK-12 Basis gives FlexBooks free to anybody who desires to make use of them.
Whereas it’s protected to imagine that lots of our readers already personal a Kindle gadget at this level, it warrants mentioning that you just don’t really need one to learn Kindle ebooks (there may be Kindle software program that’s obtainable for Home windows, Mac, iPad, and different cell platforms that lets you learn Kindle ebooks sans proudly owning an precise e-book reader).
Nevertheless, on a associated aspect be aware, in case you’re shopping for a Kindle with the intention of studying technical materials and textbook, I extremely recommend that you just go for the DX model, as a result of the display on the common sized one is simply too small to comfortably learn such detailed materials (notably when you have free math PDFs you’d wish to learn).
Completely happy studying and all the easiest to everybody in 2011, from the Math Weblog workforce.
