We take a 3-prong approach to graphing that ladders up Blooms Taxonomy levels of learning.
ADAPTIVE ECON PREP
Not all students start a principles course with the same math, graphing and terminology skills. That’s why we offer the only truly adaptive econ prep in the industry as the 1st level of graphing.
The 2nd level of our graphing allows students to go beyond the basics and apply and practice what they now know.
The 3rd level of our graphing helps students visualize, analyze and interpret economic concepts, graphs, and data by providing visual displays for them to manipulate.
ABAs are economics simulations that give students an immersive experience in course content. Each ABA is developed to drive a deeper level of content understanding. Students practice their economic thinking and problem-solving skills as they apply course concepts to real-life scenarios and see the implications of their decisions as they go. The tool also provides specific feedback based upon student responses for support when it matters most. Each activity is designed as a 15-minute experience.
Connect the Dots Videos
Connect the Dots are short, succinct videos that help bridge student’s gap in understanding for the most challenging course concepts. All videos include closed captioning and are assignable with assessment questions for improved retention. (Available for all of our Principles of Economics and Survey of Economics titles except Connect Master and Frank. For videos unique to those products, please click the next two tabs.)
