Most eBooks use a flexible layout that adjusts to fit the screen of the computer or device being used to read them. However, in some cases, such as children's books and some scientific books, the layout needs to be preserved. The fixed-layout EPUB format allows eBooks to preserve the page layout of the printed book. Not all ereader programs and devices cannot read this format.

To read any of our eBooks that are designated as "fixed-layout," you will need to use a compatible reader. Examples of free fixed-layout EPUB readers for various platforms are below:

  1. iBooks for iOS and OS X. This is free in the Apple App Store.
  2. Google Play Books for Android. This is a free app in the Google Play store.
  3. Readium for Chrome. This is a Chrome browser extension, available free in the Chrome Market.

5 General Questions

Typically, this is caused by certain web browsers not rendering the PDF fonts correctly. Letters are omitted or too close together making it appear words are misspelled or missing. These errors are not actually present in the book.

If you download the file rather than preview it in the browser's window the issue will resolve. We also highly recommend using Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the PDFs. It is a free download you can find here: https://get.adobe.com/reader/

6 Math Lessons for a Living Education

This is a skills-based series that uses a Charlotte Mason flavored approach to teaching elementary mathematics. Each skill level is the equivalent of one school year and everything you need for the course is in one book. There is a free online placement test that students are encouraged to take prior to starting the program. Once the appropriate skill level is determined, there is a lesson plan at the beginning of each book to guide you through the level. Students do approximately 1 lesson a day. Lessons include instruction, story, narration, review and practice. The teacher’s instruction is worked throughout the course with answers and manipulatives in the back of the book.

Math Lessons for a Living Education would be classified as a mastery program; however, it is not your typical mastery approach methodology. Instead, it uses various practice techniques, which help the student take in the concepts using as many senses as possible. Because narration is employed, both the teacher and the student know exactly where they are in the learning process and every concept is completely mastered before moving on to the next.
