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.
Excel Data Sets
A convenient feature is the inclusion of an Excel dat file link in many problems using data files in their calculations. The link allows students to easily launch into Excel, work the problem and return to Connect to key in the answers that are easily autograded to save instructors time.
Concept Overview Videos
These assignable videos with corresponding questions provide students with additional reinforcement on core topics in the chapters. Created by instructors, these personal videos will bring online courses to life and help supplement any face-to-face class.
