Overview

About the Product

MindTap Economics for Mankiw's Brief Principles of Macroeconomics, 7th Edition is the digital learning solution that helps instructors engage and transform today's students into critical thinkers. Through paths of dynamic assignments and applications that you can personalize, real-time course analytics, and an accessible reader, MindTap helps you turn cookie cutter into cutting edge, apathy into engagement, and memorizers into higher-level thinkers. New Video Roadmaps feature Greg Mankiw introducing the chapter content within a real world context, helping students understand how economics relates to what they experience in their lives and see in the world around them. A variety of media assets are designed to address the challenges students and instructors have told us impede learning. ConceptClips address the challenge of understanding economics terminology that students face when first introduced to the subject matter. Graphing at a Glance video tutorials bring graphs to life, allowing students to see graphs physically move along the axes. Auto-graded homework assignments from Aplia give students hands-on application without adding to your workload. Finally, new Problem Walk-Throughs further explain difficult concepts by walking students through solving problems similar to those in the text, from start to finish. Access to this product is valid for 6 months of usage.

MindTap Economics, 1 term (6 months) Instant Access for Mankiw's Brief Principles of Macroeconomics  (ISBN-10: 1285853490 | ISBN-13: 9781285853499)

MindTap is a new personal learning experience that combines all your digital assets – readings, multimedia, activities, and assessments-- into a singular learning path to improve student outcomes. Demands on instructor's time are many. Students are spread thin. All the research says that technology can be effective, but at times fitting it in can be more of a burden than a utility. Further, current offerings rarely work together. So many devices, so many Learning Management Systems, so many content providers, but none working in harmony. It's because of this, as a leading partner in education, it is our duty to help define the next category – the Personal Learning Experience. It picks up where other technology falls short. The Seventh Edition MindTap includes new personalization options within the Reader and Learning Path, including Graphing at a Glance, ConceptClips, whiteboard worked problems, etc. With MindTap, learning gets personal. Mankiw's BRIEF PRINCIPLES OF MACROECONOMICS, Seventh Edition, in the MindTap reader is a seamless online reading experience, ideal for viewing on any device, anytime, anywhere.
