Connect for Business Math
Connect drives students to engage with coursework and makes managing assignments seamless, so you can spend more time teaching.
Connect for Business Math 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.
The power of Microsoft Excel meets the power of McGraw Hill Connect in our all-new integration of Excel in Connect. Excel now opens seamlessly inside Connect with no need for uploading or downloading any additional files or software. Instructors choose their auto-grading solution, either grading for formula accuracy or for the solution value.
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.
Comprehensive Test Bank
Connect for Business Math includes a comprehensive test bank of various question types, allowing the instructor to create auto-graded assessment material with multiple problem types and randomized question order.
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 OM titles.
Videos by the authors provide an excellent learning tool for students working on their own as well as a teaching tool for instructors. All learning units in each chapter and end-of-chapter summary practice tests are reviewed by the authors who provide step-by-step solutions and tips regarding the content making the learning process interactive while reaching the varied learning styles. These videos are great for online courses as authors work one on one with students similar to an office hour visit.
Save time and gain student insights. Connect provides customizable reports on student performance, learning outcomes, at-risk students, and integrates easily with LMS gradebooks.
