Quick Guide to the Dynamic Student Edition

August is in full swing and we know many of you are heading back to the classroom to begin preparing for the school year!

The Big Ideas Math site underwent some exciting changes and updates this summer. The Students tab is now the home of the Dynamic Student Edition so we want to make sure you’re comfortable using the site before school begins.

On our YouTube channel, we have a great video on using the new Students tab and Dynamic Student Edition of the textbook.
