SmartBook

Available within Connect, SmartBook actively tailors content to the individual student- The more a student interacts with SmartBook, the better it gets to know what they know and what they don’t know, helping students to maximize study time. By providing students with a safe place to make mistakes, showing them the areas they need to work on most, and by giving them consistent, personalized feedback at the exact moment they need it, SmartBook helps them to bridge their knowledge gaps and come to class prepared.

Algorithmic Problems

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.

Video Cases -

six video cases applying business math concepts to real companies such as Six Flags, Subaru of Indiana, Noodles & Company, BuyCostumes.com, EDP Renewables and DHL. These videos are found in Connect and case information and assigment problems based on these companies are included in some end of chapters.

Author lead - Learning Unit and Chapter Summary videos

A series of author-created tutorial videos are available in Connect or through your instructor. The videos feature the authors presenting step by step explanations of the Learning Unit Practice Quizzes and Summary Practice Tests

Guided Examples

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.

Excel Templates

are available in Connect or on the Student Resource page and are easily identified by an Excel logo found next to the those problems.

Financial Calculator, Electronic Calculator and TI83-84

Graphing Calculator Guides are availalble in the student resources for students.

Assignable End-Of-Chapter Material

Connect Operations Management helps students learn more efficiently by providing feedback and practice material when they need it, where they need it. Our assignable, gradable end-of-chapter content helps students learn to solve problems and apply the concepts in finance. Algorithmic versions allow students to practice problems as many times as they need, to ensure that they fully understand each problem.
