Fewer themes, less math rigor, and a new suite of video resources allow instructors the flexibility to teach the course they want to teach, whether it’s adopting a flipped classroom format, administering a course online, or just bringing more engaging, digital content into their lectures. Students benefit from more repetition of basic concepts and support through the interactive resources in Connect, resulting in a greater mastery and retention of core economic ideas. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.
