"Every day I talk to more educators and parents who are becoming convinced that homework isn't a good way to spend kids' time out of school.

After being censured by the Keeler mafia™, I decided to update my review after receiving the hardcopy (which I was planning to do anyway). And, as expected, its an excellent resource. I like that Matt has brought in elements from "ditch that textbook" to help with the transition away from the homework paradigm. There are links to resources, ideas and how the shift away from homework is relevant to the current educational framework. The ideas presented within fit the spirit of Common Core and NGSS (from my perspective). All in all...great stuff.
After doing my own research and testing with several devices, I think I figured out what was wrong. It had to do with the aspect ratio of my device. I used a device with a 16x10 ratio. problematic. Devices with 16x9 and 3x2 (most android tablets and iPads) seemed to display things correctly.
In any case, I am much happier with my physical copy. Dogeared and highlighted already...
