The students in John Fox’s eighth grade algebra class studied for their Monday math test without the help of a textbook — instead, they used handwritten notes and their iPads. “The future of textbooks is that there won’t be any — everything is going digital,” Fox said while the Washington Middle School students listened to “A Charlie Brown Christmas” soundtrack and completed one of their final tests of the fall semester.

Progress made in both types of classes is being tracked by an outside research firm.
