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 activities that promote critical thinking and application of key economic principles.

Each Digital Interactive has progressive levels where students can explore, apply, compare, and analyze a topic.

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

Help students achieve greater conceptual understanding

Pearson eText

Pearson eText enhances learning — both in and out of the classroom. Students can take notes, highlight, and bookmark important content, or engage with interactive lecture and example videos that bring learning to life (available with select titles) anytime, anywhere via MyLab or the app.

 

Real-world application of concepts

Current News Exercises

Every week, microeconomic and macroeconomic news stories and accompanying exercises are posted to MyLab.

Assignable and auto-graded, these multi-part exercises ask students to recognize and apply economic concepts to current 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 it.

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.

Additional Features

A powerful homework and test manager

A powerful homework and test manager lets you create, import, and manage online homework assignments, quizzes, and tests that are automatically graded. You can choose from a wide range of assignment options, including time limits, proctoring, and maximum number of attempts allowed. The bottom line: MyLab means less time grading and more time teaching.

Comprehensive online course content

Filled with a wealth of content that is tightly integrated with your textbook, MyLab lets you easily add, remove, or modify existing instructional material. You can also add your own course materials to suit the needs of your students or department. In short, MyLab lets you teach exactly as you'd like.

Robust gradebook tracking

The Gradebook offers an easy way for you and your students to see their performance in your course. Item Analysis lets you quickly see trends by analyzing details like the number of students who answered correctly/incorrectly, time on task, and more. And because it's correlated with the AACSB Standards, you can track students' progress toward outcomes that the organization has deemed important in preparing students to be leaders.

Easily scalable and shareable content

MyLab enables you to manage multiple class sections, and lets other instructors copy your settings so a standardized syllabus can be maintained across your department. Should you want to use the same MyLab course next semester, with the same customized settings, you can copy your existing course exactly — and even share it with other faculty members.
