Connect for Operations Management Features
Available within Connect, SmartBook 2.0 personalizes learning to individual student needs, continually adapting to pinpoint knowledge gaps and focus learning on concepts requiring additional study. For instructors, SmartBook tracks student progress and provides insights that guide teaching strategies and advanced instruction, for a more dynamic class experience.
Assignable End-Of-Chapter Material
Connect for Operations Management 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 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.
These narrated, animated, step-by-step walkthroughs of algorithmic versions of assigned exercises provide immediate feedback and focus on the areas where students need the most guidance. Available for most Operations Management titles.
