Textbooks Online – Know the Parts

Many schools use textbooks online. The students access them through the use of Chromebooks or iPads. This is a good cost savings method. The only problem is that the student does not pay attention to how the pieces of the textbook can be helpful.

Have your student locate the Table of Contents, the Glossary and the Index for the online textbook. There may also be answers to problems- math text, chemistry text or physics text. When students are given class notes and they need additional information, they can use these resources to find answers to their questions.

Another good reference source is online videos. You Tube and Khan Academy have many informative videos. This is a way for a student to hear the lesson that was given in class again. It is also possible to replay the video as many times as is necessary to understand the information.
