PRLog - May 8, 2012 - Houston, May 8, 2012 –YourTeacher (www.YourTeacher.com), a leading provider of online and app-based math tutoring and test prep in the consumer market, today announced the release of their first math iBook for schools: Algebra 1.  Available exclusively at Apple’s iBookstore, YourTeacher’s patent-pending math iBook is the world’s first ‘Textbook with a Teacher Inside ®.’
Unlike traditional textbooks, YourTeacher’s iBooks have a personal math teacher built in, ready to provide the 'heavy lifting' instruction for every student.  Think of them as an army of assistants for the perpetually overworked and underappreciated math teacher.  By flipping the classroom so that the repetitive core instruction is done outside of class, the iBooks offer teachers the freedom to focus on higher-level concepts and one-on-one instruction.  YourTeacher’s iBooks are also much less expensive than textbooks from traditional publishers, helping to justify the purchase of iPads by lowering textbook costs.
“When I was a math teacher, I would start class each day by presenting the example problems from the book,” states Mike Maggart, Co-Founder and Director of Education at YourTeacher. “That’s why every example problem in our entire Algebra 1 iBook is a video of me explaining the problem at a whiteboard.  There are many other features, but they all relate to the same idea – we take the teacher and the textbook, and we put the two together for the entire school year.  The bottom line is that it makes taking math and teaching math so much easier.”
During the 2011-12 school year, KIPP Academy, one of the nation’s leading charter school systems, piloted YourTeacher’s Algebra 1 on the iPad.  According to Pegah Javidpour, an Algebra 1 teacher at KIPP, “The iPads serve as a tutor when their regular teacher is not around. Many of my students have left a class period not having mastered the objective for the day, and when they come back the next day, they have learned it.”
