Continuing the list of places to find free textbooks, Free High School Textbooks can be accessed by clicking here. Reviewing their site, I saw several interesting titles on math, physics, and chemistry.
You will need to download these to your computer first, then transfer them over to your Kindle. Don’t know how to do that? Just click here to read my free tutorial. The books I sampled are in PDF format: If you need to convert the books from PDF to Kindle format, click here to read my tutorial.
Here’s a brief description of the Free High School Textbooks site, directly from their website:
FHSST (Free High School Science Texts) is a project that aims to provide free science and mathematics textbooks for Grades 10 to 12 science learners in South Africa.
In the interests of openness in all ways we’ve written a how-to with all our learnings for you to download. It complements the great case study of FHSST completed by the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME).
Science education is about more than learning subjects like Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics… It is about learning to think and to solve problems. These are valuable skills that can be applied through all spheres of life. Teaching these skills to young people will equip them to make a positive contribution to the future of South Africa.
The project was initiated by young South African scientists, and now brings together scientists from around the world who are willing to contribute to the writing of the books.
- To provide a complete high school science text that can be used for free anywhere else in the world as needed
- To provide a free resource, that can be used alone or in conjunction with other education initiatives in South Africa, to any/all learners and teachers
- To provide a detailed, accurate and interesting text that adheres to the South African school curriculum and the outcomes-based education system
- To provide a text that is easy to read and understand even for second-language English speakers
- Make a difference in South Africa through helping to educate our next generation
The driving force of this project is based on the ideas and principles of the free software community where each person does their part to build something great together.
Hope that helps!
