Friday Freebies: Downloadable Textbooks for Your Homeschool!

Every once in a while I stumble onto something really neat without really trying.

This is truly remarkable.  CK12 offers (for FREE) a collection of customizable textbooks for download.  Over 80 texts are available at this time.

Customizable, you say?  How does that work?

Rather than simply downloading a textbook from cover to cover, you create a “Flexbook” which allows you to select the whole text or just particular chapters, creating a unique textbook.  It can then be shared in any of 3 formats:

  • printable pdf
  • online e-reader
  • html---interactive with videos and links

Some of the available CK12 textbooks (not customizable) can be downloaded in their entirety for your Kindle!

Subjects:  mainly math, science, and technology, but also SAT prep, a bit of US history, and a bit of language arts.

Age range:  Mainly high school, but also a few 6-8 grade level texts.  I’m going to be taking a closer look at the middle school math and science myself. ;0)
