Mastering guides you through the most challenging topics with in-depth, self-paced tutorials that provide individualized coaching, hints, and feedback that keep you moving forward.
Using data gathered from all of the students using the program, Mastering offers wrong-answer feedback that is specific to each student. Rather than simply providing feedback of the "right/wrong/try again" variety, Mastering guides you towards the correct final answer without giving the answer away.
Mastering provides hints of two types that help you work through, and ultimately solve, problems. Declarative hints provide advice on how to approach the problem, guiding you to the final answer. Socratic hints break a problem down into smaller sub-problems, which makes it easier for you to complete the original problem.
The study area in Mastering enables you to watch videos and animations, take practice quizzes, review key concepts, access study tools, and more. The work done here is not reported to the instructor's grade book, making it the ideal area to practice at your own pace and without penalty.
Mastering's Chapter Quizzes and Practice Tests help you find out whether you're prepared, and give you the opportunity to prep for class and exams whenever you like.
Packed with engaging multimedia content, Mastering's interactive eText allows you to highlight, add your own study notes, and review your instructor's personalized notes, 24/7.
