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.

Algorithmic Problems

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.

Guided Examples

Excel Simulations

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.
