Lately I've been doing a lot of thinking about whether or not we require math textbooks anymore. Cash strapped schools often resort to using whatever textbooks are available. Is this a good thing? I don't think so. However, when you ask why, the answer you get is that each student doesn't have a computer. Hence, there is a need for each student to have a textbook. When you need to learn something, what do you do? If you are like me and many others, you simply look it up online. In fact, I have access to a plethora of math textbooks but still go online when I have a specific item I'm looking for, and my textbooks gather dust, regardless of the information they hold. If you have differing opinions, I'd love to hear from you. In the meantime, I truly believe that textbooks will soon become obsolete. Leave your texts behind and check out our online tutorials.
