Engage, challenge, and assess students' economic understanding

Digital Interactives

Economic principles are not static ideas, and learning them shouldn’t be either! Digital Interactives are dynamic and engaging assessment activities that promote critical thinking and application of key economic principles.

Each Digital Interactive has 3-5 progressive levels and requires approximately 20 minutes to explore, apply, compare, and analyze each topic. Many Digital Interactives include real-time data from FRED™ allowing professors and students to display, in graph and table form, up-to-the-minute data on key macro variables.

Digital Interactives can be assigned and graded within MyLab Economics, or used as a lecture tool to encourage engagement, classroom conversation, and group work.

Help students achieve greater conceptual understanding

Enhanced eText

The Enhanced eText keeps students engaged in learning on their own time, while helping them achieve greater conceptual understanding of course material. The worked examples, animations, and interactive tutorials bring learning to life, and algorithmic practice allows students to apply the very concepts they are reading about. Combining resources that illuminate content with accessible self-assessment, MyLab with Enhanced eText provides students with a complete digital learning experience—all in one place.

And with the Pearson eText 2.0 mobile app (available for select titles) students can now access the Enhanced eText and all of its functionality from their computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Because students’ progress is synced across all of their devices, they can stop what they’re doing on one device and pick up again later on another one—without breaking their stride.

Real-world application of concepts

Current News Exercises

Every week, current microeconomic and macroeconomic news stories, with accompanying exercises, are posted to MyLab. Assignable and auto-graded, these multi-part exercises ask students to recognize and apply economic concepts to real-world events.

Up-to-the-minute macroeconomics data

Real-time Data Analysis Exercises

Easy to assign and automatically graded, Real-Time Data Analysis exercises use up-to-the-minute, real-time macroeconomic data. These exercises communicate directly with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis’s FRED site, so every time FRED posts new data, students see new data. 

Real-Time Data Analysis exercises are available in the latest Principles of Economics (all versions), Intermediate Macroeconomics, and Money & Banking courses. Just look for the Real-Time Data Analysis icon!

Make studying more effective and efficient

Personalized Learning

Not every student learns the same way and at the same rate. And now, thanks to advances in adaptive learning technology, you no longer have to teach as if they do. MyLab & Mastering with Personalized Learning assesses student performance and activity in real time and, using data and analytics, personalizes content to reinforce concepts that target each student’s strengths and weaknesses.
