About us

merican Book Company’s writers and curriculum specialists have decades of total teaching experience. We’ve worked with students at every level— from kindergarten through middle school, and from high school to college and teacher prep. Each of our state test-prep books is tailored to your state education board’s standards and objectives. We take pride in writing books that are accurate, effective, easy to read, enjoyable for teachers, and engaging for students. Our books and software are each specially designed to help students prepare and review for individual state exit exams, state assessments, and graduation tests. We also publish materials based on state content standards for concept and skill development in math, reading, language arts, science, social studies, and writing. We don’t try to come up with secret tricks for passing standardized tests. Instead, we focus on building skills. Our books and software are all about concrete explanations, step-by-step instructions, plentiful practice exercises, interactive graphics, and full-length practice tests. Plus, each book features a Diagnostic Test, which shows your students exactly how they can maximize their test-prep time by digging into real standards-based content.

We know how students suc to help ceed!

I had a brand new teacher who did a little action research project. She used the American Book Company book with three groups of students, and another book with two other groups of students. 90% of the students who were using the American Book Company book passed— many more than in the other groups.

INSTRUCTIONAL ReSOURCeS FOR eDUCATORS, PAReNTS AND STUDeNTS

Musical
in partnership with

Mathematics

Instructional guides provide information to help teachers and parents use Musical Mathematics to deepen students' understanding of mathematical concepts and enrich their overall math experience. The three Activity Books for Grades K-2, 1-3 and 2-5 engage students in learning multiplication facts while simultaneously integrating other mathematical content areas. Children will benefit from using number sense, numeration, algebra, and other mathematic skills as they work with multiplication. Teacher Guides provide detailed instruction on how to implement Musical Mathematics in the classroom.

E

ducational Dynamix, a provider of innovative programs that fulfill “No Child Left Behind” guidelines, has developed Musical Mathematics. Because children love music and are naturally drawn to rhythm, the Musical Mathematics series uses children’s innate appreciation of music to help increase their knowledge of mathematical content. The Musical Mathematics audio CD contains mathematically-themed songs – filled with rhythm and spirit – to teach children the mathematical concept of “skip counting.”

C

hildren are motivated to learn when they enjoy what they are doing. The songs of Musical Mathematics allow instructors to add energy and excitement to math lessons through singing and active engagement. Several genres of music spanning numerous cultures and rhythmic experiences allow for diverse and effective methods of teaching math concepts that help promote learning and memory. Each of the songs on the CD were written and performed by singer/songwriter Liz Robinson accompanied by a choir of children.

Testimonials

Customer

“The story selections [in the Passing the ISTEP+ GEE in Language Arts book] are more contemporary. They include references to movies and shows that are familiar to them. It’s easier for students to relate to these stories.” - Rose Lacey at Batesville High School, IN “If you’re looking for something that is student-friendly and matches South Carolina’s standards, this is it!” - Diane Davis at Marion High School, SC, speaking about our Passing the South Carolina HSAP in ELA: Reading book Emily Rash, a Mathematics Teacher in Monroe, LA, says that our books correlate perfectly with the LEAP GEE Exit Exams. Among her students, 75 percent had previously failed the math portion of the exam. After the students studied with our workbooks, “EVERYONE PASSED!” “[The California Mathematics Review] book is so much better than what we were using. It gives the students a foundation in the basic concepts and then builds on that foundation.” - Richard Gragnani at Tranquility High School, CA “I have found no materials that compare to your [Passing the LEAP Graduation Exit Exam]series. It is my opinion that my new school district would benefit greatly from the purchase and use of your books.” -Benton M. Foster, a former teacher from LA, currently working in AK “The best things about the [Passing the Georgia Social Studies Graduation Test] book are how it’s broken into chapters based upon the periods of history, the fact that it’s relatively concise, is easily readable, and has no distractions. This book does the job you want it to do!” - Bill Malone at Morgan County High School, GA
