math-u-see binding

Postby ladywith8kidz » Mon May 07, 2007 9:50 am

Hey, I am wondering if there is anyone out there that would like to see math u see use spiral binding rather than the current binding they are using? I have 5 young boys and our books are always falling apart and the teacher's book is hard to fold back. I have emailed math u see about this and suggested spiral binding and they said that no on e had ever mentiioned this problem before and they assume that everyone is happy with the books.

If you have had the same frustration would you consider emailing a suggestion about using spiral binding? If we bind together, we can maybe see them change this.
thanks,
debbie

Just a suggestion for in the mean time: Take your books to your local copy place, such as Kinkos. They will bind them for you with a comb binding (they may even offer spiral binding) or drill holes for you to be able to put them in a 3ring binder. That may make the books you already have a bit easier to use.

We take ours out of the comb binding and keep in a large envelope. I pull out a weeks worth of sheets at a time and put on a clip board. Spiral binding is MUCH more expensive than comb binding. I imagine they would have to charge a lot more for the books if they did that. Another option is to punch holes in them and put in a three ring binder.
