Connect Finance Features

### Assignable Video Series

Assignable, animated videos with 3 accompanying questions help students understand the key learning objectives. These dynamic videos are between 2-5 minutes in length are especially helpful to keep students engaged and those who would like additional review outside of the text. Videos are available with select Corporate Finance and Personal Finance titles.

### Excel Simulation Problems

Excel Simulation Problems allow students to practice their Excel skills within the context of Corporate Finance or Investments. Questions feature animated, narrated Help and Show Me tutorials for students, as well as automatic feedback and grading for both students and professors. Excel Simulation problems are available with select Corporate Finance, MBA Corporate Finance, and Investments titles.

### Personal Financial Plans

All NEW Personal Financial Plans are available for the first time within Connect. The assignable, auto-gradable plans correlate with sections of the text and have students work through a case and apply concepts learned.

### Prep Courses

Prep Courses cover the basic concepts in Math, Statistics, Accounting, Excel, and Economics, and are comprised of animated tutorial modules with quiz questions. Instructors can assign as homework or include for optional practice. Prep Courses give instructors more time in class to cover finance topics, and ensure that students do not get left behind.

### Assignable End-Of-Chapter Material

Connect Finance helps students learn more efficiently by providing feedback and practice material when they need it, where they need it. Our assignable, gradable end-of-chapter content helps students learn to solve problems and apply the concepts in finance. Algorithmic versions allow students to practice problems as many times as they need, to ensure that they fully understand each problem.

### Algorithmic Problems

Algorithmic problems are auto-graded exercises using different numeric values each time a problem is served up to the student. This gives students practice in working a problem several times – same question, but different numbers each time. This also deters cheating because each student in a class or lab receives a slightly different version of the problem and correct answer.

### Guided Examples

Guided Examples provide narrated and animated, step-by-step walkthroughs of algorithmic versions of assigned exercises, allowing students to identify, review or reinforce the concepts and activities covered in class. Immediate feedback is provided so students can focus on the areas where they need the most guidance.

### Comprehensive Test Bank

Connect Finance includes a comprehensive test bank of various question types, allowing the instructor to create auto-graded assessment material with multiple problem types, algorithmic variation, and randomized question order.

### SmartBook

Available within Connect, SmartBook actively tailors content to the individual student. The more a student interacts with SmartBook, the better it gets to know what they know and what they don’t know, helping students to maximize study time. By providing students with a safe place to make mistakes, showing them the areas they need to work on most, and by giving them consistent, personalized feedback at the exact moment they need it, SmartBook helps them to bridge their knowledge gaps and come to class prepared.
