Mission: A free interactive math textbook on the web. Initially covering high-school geometry.
A New Approach to College Textbooks. Finally.
We preserve the best of the old – books by leading experts, rigorously reviewed and developed to the highest standards. Then we flip it all on its head.
Our books are free online. We offer convenient, low-cost choices for students – print-on-demand softcovers, audio books and chapters, self-print options, and more. Our books are open for instructors to modify and make their own (for their own course — not for anybody else’s). Our books are the hub of a social learning network where students learn from the book and each other.
Flat World Knowledge. Because great minds are evenly distributed. Great textbooks are not. Until Now.
