Textbooks is a catch-all term used here for any type of book that is specifically designed for education. The category includes teacher guides, workbooks, activity guides, unit studies, and traditional classroom textbooks.
There are two sub-categories available in a drop-down menu to help you narrow down your choices by grade level.
These are the student worksheets and assessment tests for K12's AMERICA HISTORY BEFORE 1865 course that is intended for students in grades 5-8.
"This Teacher Guide contains the main teaching material for the lessons. It includes background information on the important concepts in the lessons, a list of required materials, an activity-by-activity description of what students are learning, and the answers to questions in the lessons." — from Introduction (page ix)
"In Kindergarten we begin with an emphasis on geography by taking your child on a world tour, visiting various lands and meeting many people (and animals) on the seven continents. During this tour your child gets regular practice in finding his or her way around on a map and globe." — from "About K12 History" (page vii)
"This year you will build on the mathematical skills you already know, as you explore new ideas. ... To further assist you in monitoring your progress in mathematics, the authors of the textbook have identified the Grade 5 California Mathematics Content Standards for each lesson in this book." — from "Welcome to Progress in Mathematics" (page xi)
"Whether or not you realize it, you see and use mathematics every day! The lessons and activities in this textbook will help you enjoy mathematics and become a better mathematician." — from "Welcome to Progress in Mathematics" on Page xi
"The material is divided into three self-contained, but closely related parts. The level of difficulty of each part is fairly uniform, but the degree of elaboration varies depending on the importance or novelty of the topic."—from the Preface
Scalar Vector Graphics—or SVG— is the new XML-based graphics standard from the W3C that will enable web documents to be smaller, faster, and more interactive. J. David Eisenberg's insightful book takes you through the ins and outs of SVG, beginning with basics needed to create simple line drawings and then moving through more complicated features such as filters, transformations, and integration with Java, PERL, and XSLT.—from the back cover
"This book provides an introduction to abstract algebraic geometry using the methods of schemes and cohomology."—from the Preface
"The outlook of the second edition is the same as that of the original: to present linear algebra as the theory and practice of linear equations and linear mappings. Where it aids understandings and calculations, I don't hesitate to describe vectors as arrays of numbers and describe mappings as matrices."—by the author, from the Preface
"As a whole, [this book] is designed for graduate students interested in mathematical methods, computer science, electrical engineering, and operations research."— from the back cover
"This book discusses the statistical properties of long, flexible objects, polymer chains being the fundamental example."—from the Introduction
"Provides an in-depth treatment of the Traveling Salesman problem—the archetypical problem in combinatorial optimization. Each chapter deals with a different aspect of the problem, and has been written by an acknowledged expert in the field. Focusses on the essential ideas in a self-contained manner. Includes exercises and an extensive bibliography."—from the publisher
The author's aims in this book are as follows: "1. To present a slow introduction to Lebesgue integration...2. To deal with n-dimensional spaces from the outset...3. To provide a thorough treatment of Fourier analysis...4. To prepare students to become 'workers' in real analysis."—from the Preface
"The complex social behaviors of ants have been much studied by science, and computer scientists are now finding that these behavior patterns can provide models for solving difficult combinatorial optimization problems." — From the back cover
"When familiar at least with the basics of measure theoretic probability, one may use this book to get a feel for the type of problems one tackles with the given methods and the type of results one can expect and then proceed to more detailed expositions.... The book is an impressive achievement."—Mathematical Reviews
Foundations Of Quantum Chromodynamics: An Introduction to Perturbative Methods in Gauge Theories (Softcover)
A top of the line physics book in the field of Quantum Chromodynamics.
Handwriting Without Tears® (HWT) is a simple developmentally based cirriculum for writing readiness, printing, and cursive.—From the Welcome section
Cursive Teacher's Guide for Cursive Handwriting - Grade 3 - and Cursive Success - Grade 4 (Softcover)
"Cursive Teacher's Guide is the guide to the student work-books, Cursive Handwriting (Grade 3) and Cursive Success (Grade 4). It has lesson plans and teaching tips that will help you be a great handwriting instructor."—from the Introduction
A fun way to learn word meanings and usage.
Primary Analogies seeks to develop critical and creative thinking skills in the younger student.
"In this book you'll get comfortable with verbs, so tenses won't make you tense. You'll learn lots of other stuff, such as how to use quotation marks. Without them, it's very hard to figure out who's saying what!"—From the Back Cover
"In this book you'll get to practice pronouns and lots more. You'll also learn how to write a letter or an e-mail to a friend... Plus, along the way you'll learn many interesting facts..." — From the Back Cover
