Principles of Microeconomics, A Streamlined Approach https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1264058780.jpeg 4 9781264058785 Principles of Microeconomics: A Streamlined Approach seeks to promote a deeper understanding of economics by focusing on core concepts to produce economic naturalists through active learning. By eliminating overwhelming detail and focusing on core principles, students from all backgrounds are able to grasp a deeper understanding of economics. Instead of quantitative detail, the focus is on helping students become “economic naturalists,” people who employ basic economic principles to understand and explain the world around them. COVID-19 pandemic content, analysis, and examples further engage students. 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. With new videos and engagement tools in Connect, like Application-Based Activities, alongside SmartBook's adaptive reading experience, the 4th edition enables instructors to spend class time engaging, facilitating, and answering questions instead of lecturing on the basics. 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.
