200+ Free Mathematics Books

The Free Mathematics Books section of E-Books Directory contains nearly 300 titles. The books in the collection cover topics from basic Algebra through advanced number theory and everything in between.

The entire E-Books Directory contains nearly 1700 titles. The E-Books Directory provides freely downloadable textbooks, documents, and lecture notes. You can search the directory by keyword or browse through hundreds of categories.

Applications for Education
The E-Books Directory could be a good place to find downloadable books to use as supplemental materials in your classroom. I'm thinking of referring some of my US History students to the US History section of the E-Books Directory.

Free eBooks at Planet eBook

Planet eBook is a free service where teachers and students can find classic literature titles available as free downloads. Planet eBook adds new titles at regular intervals. Subscribe to the Planet eBook blog or newsletter to keep track of the latest additions to the collection. For browsing purposes, Planet eBook offers previews of titles through the Issuu pdf publishing service. Using the previews students can get an overview of a title without committing to downloading the entire ebook.

Applications for Education
I'm always preaching the cost-saving benefits of open source software and the same concept applies to free ebooks. Free ebook downloads can save school districts money when compared to the cost of buying novels. If you or your school is concerned about changing to a completely ebook based system, try phasing in ebooks as old novels and textbooks get worn out by students.
