Helping Students Prepare for Lecture

SmartBook - The first and only adaptive reading and study experience designed to change the way students read and master key course concepts. As a student engages with SmartBook, the program creates a personalized learning path by highlighting the most impactful concepts the student needs to learn at that moment in time and delivering targeted probing questions. This rich, dynamic delivery helps students learn the material, retain more knowledge, and get better grades.

Helping Students Solve Problems

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.

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. Static versions are also available so that you can also have a set of exercises where students would get the same numbers.
